Ferns

The ferns in my garden are almost fully unwound and getting taller by the day.

























Earrings with fern inspired glass beads.



























The glass is bands of Double Helix Gaia applied over a base bead of Effetre white. The bands were melted in, raked, hand shaped into lentils and then heavily reduced.































I love how the interaction of the silver in the Gaia with the white glass forms the lustros caramel colored trails.

























The earrings are up in my Belvedere Etsy shop.
