These earrings feature my own handmade glass raspberry beads, accented by handmade glass leaves. You may choose Sterling Silver or 14/20 Gold Filled leverback ear wires.
To keep them light in weight, I make the raspberry beads about 12mm high. The overall length of the earrings is about 2 inches.
I hand-form each of these realistic raspberry beads in the flame of a torch using simple tools and rods of colored glass. No two are ever exactly alike.
Like real raspberries, each of my glass raspberry beads has a translucent quality with a soft surface sheen. I make sure that every cell of the raspberry has a slight vertical indentation, just as real ones do. I don't use paint, so the color will not rub, flake or chip off.
