I love the colors in these gorgeous art glass beads! The purple blue has this incredible iridescent shimmer, a result of the high end glass used by the artist in this creation. The warm orange-red is simply gorgeous. Truly. And the swirl is as a ocean wave, creating the suggestion of the horizon at sunset. The earrings are made with sterling silver and vintage Swarovski crystals. Be sure to see the matching bracelet. (I have a couple of more beads from this bead set, so let me know if you’d prefer a necklace with which to pair these beauties.
