These earrings are part of the Heavy Metal Series I started last summer. They are completed with that favorite glass of mine, Dark Silver Plum. It's probably hard to tell in this photograph, but this glass has a pewter-like appearance with the capabilites of changing to many metallic colors. The wires are in Fine Silver (.999) and handmade by me also. Lightweight pieces for those who "like to put it out there"! I'm working on some beads right now that will have shards in this color. Stay tuned for more on that later.
