Embedded Rose Lampglass Earrings

Embedded Rose Lampglass Earrings. Aren't these utterly charming? The wonderful thing about handmade lampworking of beads is that tiny bits of glass can be embedded in the molten glass bead as it is being wound over the open flame.

In these charming earrings, the lampglass beads are crystal clear but seem to contain within them tiny roses with green leaves. My design includes Swarovski clear crystal rondels, sterling silver spacers, and sea green Czech glass rondels at the top of each rose bead. Earwires are sterling silver.

I don't know why, but these earrings seem sort of Victorian to me. They're dainty and very feminine somehow. Sure to garner compliments. What do you think, dear readers?
