Magenta Glass Earrings

I used dichroic glass to make these gorgeous glass earrings.  Once these glass earrings were finished, I decided to use gold filled bails and gold filled earwires.  Most of the time I use sterling silver findings, but the colors in these glass earrings needed gold.   

I did some grinding on these glass earrings to get a nice shape and to get them to match each other as well as possible.  Grinding small pieces of glass really does a number on my nails.  I think I grind more of my nails than glass 🙂  It does take a lot of work to grind small pieces, but it is worth it.

Tell me what you think about these glass earrings!
