Iconic Pillars and Arches earrings in gold with purple glass
These earrings are heavily influenced by architecture. The clear coated golden brass arch pieces were hand built and have a lovely movement. I chose the twisted grey iridescent glass beads for the chain because of their coloring and look of ancient roman glass. The focal glass bead is very weathered and rustic looking, similar to historic trade beads. The ear posts are sterling silver and the total length is 1.5".
