14k gold filled earrings with hand shaped borosilicate glass bead.
The bead is made out of borosilicate glass, a material laboratories and restaurants use because it is much sturdier than standard, everyday glass due to the boron trioxide content that makes it less volatile. The material is sourced from a local glass blower in Brooklyn, New York.
The gold wire coil is made of ethically sourced 14k gold-filled, a technique where a sheet of solid 14k gold is heated bonded to a core of brass.
We'd encourage you to protect the jewelry by avoiding harsh chemicals and placing it in a dust bag after each wear.
