These Glass Blackberry Earrings feature my handmade glass blackberry beads hung on your choice of Sterling Silver or 14/20 Gold Filled v-wire findings. The blackberries are accented by green Swarovski Elements crystals.
To keep them lightweight, I make each blackberry about 12mm (1/2 inch) high. The overall length of the earrings is about 1-1/2 inches.
I form these glass blackberry beads one cell at a time in the flame of a torch using simple tools and colored glass rods. No two blackberries are exactly alike. I don't use paint so the color will never rub, flake or chip off.
Like real blackberries each of these glass blackberries contains a few reddish not-quite-ripe cells and the center plug that remained inside when it was picked. However, I will be happy to make you a pair of earrings with completely ripe blackberries if you prefer.
