Red/Blue Beaded Diamond Shape Dangle Earrings / Handcrafted Original Picasso Czech Silky Beads & Japanese Seed Beads
Red/Blue Beaded Diamond Shape Dangle Earrings / Handcrafted Original Picasso Czech Silky Beads & Japanese Seed Beads. The Picasso silky beads are made in the Czech Republic. The Picasso description means that the main color is accented by splashes of a contrasting color in the glass. The technique is found in many size and shapes. The silky description is a bead that has a humped contour one on side rather than being flat. Giving the bead an interesting subtle texture. These particular "Silkies" I have used here have 2 holes on the diagonal. There are 4 of these Czech Silkies are used to make a diamond shape then beaded together to give them a layered look. Then are embellished with tiny Japanese seed beads and some other brick colored beads that are vintage (probably from Czechoslovakia) . Plus I have used a dual colored iridescent faceted fire polished beads.
The earrings are 3 inches long and come on a silver earring wire. The condition is excellent and they are made with great care by me. They are an original design. Most of the earrings I have created are truly one of a kind.. Some maybe similar but each one varies somewhat.
They look so much prettier then how they look in the pictures. The picture that shows them dangling from a stand is a picture of the back.
