Faceted Glass Earrings - Black

Every piece of Wearing Glass is ‘made with Aroha’ at Isla’s Auckland studio, and each piece of glass handcrafted right from scratch, and finished with sustainably sourced sterling silver. All items from Wearing Glass are totally handcrafted, so your piece will be truly unique - due to the nature of this please remember that each product will slightly differ from the images we use. 

These earrings feature a geometric, faceted glass bead, in a deep black colour. With a long hook, these are a great pair of everyday earrings and super comfy !  

 

Measurements: full length - 40 mm, hooks - 15 mm (secured with a faceted bead) 

 

Wearing Glass - Isla Osborne 

For Isla Osborne, Wearing Glass started as a part time creative adventure and has developed into a full time passion for creating hand-made glass works. Each piece of jewellery is totally unique, as every piece is made by sculpting molten glass using a blowtorch powered with oxygen and natural gas, and beads are made one at a time, thus every piece of glass tells a story. "Lampworking is an ancient and magical process, with a chemistry that borders on alchemy and as an artist I find its lure irresistible."
Isla lived and worked in London for 10 years, exhibiting internationally before returning to Aotearoa in 2007 to start a family - where the traditional glass studio she works out of is now based, in Grey Lynn. As well as being a family business, the team individually hand-crafts products using techniques that date back thousands of years, and Isla is proud to keep this ancient tradition alive for the next generation of craftspeople.
