Handmade by Bryce and Paola Tipper in their studio in Portland, Oregon using a technique known as Lampworking. Each teardrop shaped glass bead is formed using a stationary torch. A highly durable paint is then applied to the back of the glass by hand and then placed in a kiln which gives the bead extra vibrancy and dimension with the color. Each glass earring bead is approximately 3/4" with a 1 1/4" drop. Sterling silver hooks.
