Quiet Ripples Earrings

Quiet Ripples Earrings

Vintage molded glass makes a lovely pair of earrings; the color of blue is soft and pastel, and the glass has been framed by an intricately stitched border of Czech glass beads and seed beads. Pretty, and one of a kind!


These vintage glass beads are a distinctive shape, and recognizable color of blue from the Germany Post WWII period. A lovely, serene blue! I love the ripples that give dimension to these beads. While uncommon to find, they are not rare–at least not yet–so I took the precaution while designing these earrings of not gluing anything to them. The entire bead is stitched with a surrounding bezel, and if these large beads were ever to become prized collectibles, you could take the entire thing apart! However, I hope you will love these earrings so much they will be more valuable to you as you bought them here. 🙂

Even the back of the earring has a pretty design; it serves a practical function of keeping the bead safe within the bezel (without glue) but it is also a lovely geometric pattern.

These hang at a demure length your grandmother would have approved of–a dainty 2 inches, if even that. The round ripple beads are 1 inch in diameter.

Materials used: vintage glass focal bead; Czech glass faceted bicone beads, Japanese glass seed beads. Silver finishes, with silver ear hook. Ear hook can be switched out to suit your preference.

The back of the piece is stitched in a pretty geometric design.
