These bead embroidered earrings showcase a pair of 1960’s vintage glass cabochons from my collection. The stones are faceted – which gives them a lovely sparkle – and the color is sapphire blue with an aurora borealis finish that lends flashes of amber and green when the light hits.
The cabs are set in a hand beaded bezel comprised of glass seed beads in soft dusky blues. They’re surrounded with a lacey edge stitch of seed beads and Swarovski crystals, and accented with two glass dagger beads with a really cool holographic effect.
They measure about 2.25″ long total, or about 1.75″ from the base of the earlobe. The earring hooks are sterling silver.
