Strips of black glass, dichroic blue-green glass followed by clear glass are torch melted then coaxed to wind around a metal rod to form a baroque bead.  Each bead takes me about 20 minutes to make and when I make the earrings, I sort through my "stash" of handmade glass beads until I find a pair of beads that goes together.  Balinese gold overlay on sterling silver beads were used.  The leverback earwires are gold filled.
