The latest jewelry.
I've been making lampwork beads since 2002 and jewelry for much longer. My lampwork glass beads are always properly kiln annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for durability. I'm fond of using Swarovski (TM) crystals and 925 sterling silver with my lampwork beads.
I also have a line of fashion jewelry where I use niobium, surgical or stainless steel earwires. The materials used in each item will be clearly detailed in each listing. I have sensitive ears, and I know how frustrating cheap earwires can be.
- Niobium is generally considered to be safe for everyone.
- Surgical steel is safe for most people, however, it does contain a small amount of nickel. The surgical steel earwires I use meet or exceed EU regulation EN1811-2011 for nickel content.
- Stainless steel earwires may irritate some sensitive individuals. You have been warned.
If you would like a design with earwires other than what is offered, feel free to contact me.
Every item is made in my rather chaotic Washington workshop. I use USA components and materials whenever possible (unfortunately it's not always possible) and purchase from reputable USA suppliers.
Thanks for stopping by.
