Sterling silver lampwork glass earrings with purple kyanite and orange sapphire
These gorgeous lampwork glass cones made by Karin Jutta Hruza, the Beadfairy, didn't need much adornment. I opted for simplicity, adding only small purple kyanite and orange sapphire beads to accent the rich colors swirling within; some only revealed in direct light. I have included a photo that reveals why I chose orange sapphire and named the earrings "hidden sunset." These earrings are 2 3/4" long and I used all sterling silver metal.
