Glass Gooseberry Earrings on 14/20 Gold-Filled V-Wires

These Glass Gooseberry Earrings feature my handmade glass gooseberry beads hung on 14/20 Gold-Filled v-wire findings. The berries are accented by green Swarovski crystals. Like real gooseberries, each is a translucent green with delicate white veins running over its surface from the stem to the dried flower at the tip, and you can see the seeds inside. The edges of the glass dried flower at the end of each gooseberry have been rounded so they will not snag on clothing. These beads are hand-formed in the flame of a torch from colored glass and copper. As a result, the color will not rub, flake or chip off, and no two gooseberries are exactly alike.

I make gooseberries in a range of colors from unripe dark green through tart mid-green (shown), ripe yellow, and slightly overripe golden brown. If you would like yours to be a ripeness other than the mid-green shown here, specify when you order. To keep the earrings light in weight, I normally use gooseberry beads that are between 10mm and 12mm in size. However, I can make them as small as 8mm or as large as 14mm if you prefer.

Alternative earring findings including post, french wire, leverback and screwback are available at no additional charge. Other gooseberry earring variations and matching necklaces can be seen on the Gooseberries Page of this site. Gooseberry earrings can also be custom made with high-karat gold or platinum findings and accented with glass leaves or gemstone beads.

Ordering information is available on the Order and Contact Page.
