Red and Black Earrings with Frosted Matte Lampwork Glass and Sterling Silver Chain, Handmade Jewelry

red and black lampwork earrings for women

Red and black create such a magical combination when used together, as these unique, eye catching earrings definitely show. The well named ALCHEMY earrings were handmade from luscious red lampwork glass beads with four, slightly raised black dots on each. Since the artisan lampwork beads have a matte finish, they have a rich velvety look and feel to them. The beads are somewhat translucent so glow when backlit, as the first photo shows. Because the lampwork beads were individually handmade, you can see from the photos that they are very similar but also slightly different. Fun and flirty, just imagine how gorgeous these beauties will look on you!

Stacked above each lampwork bead, separated by a sterling silver daisy spacer, is a jet black Czech glass rondelle. Since the rondelle is faceted, it adds subtle sparkle to the earrings design. For extra fun and lots of movement, a short length of sterling silver figaro chain was wire wrapped to the main body of the earrings and connected to sterling silver earwires. Created for the woman who loves to war red and black jewelry, the ALCHEMY lampwork glass earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.
