These tiny earrings are made with vintage glass cabochons. The tiny stones have bright silver accents. I found these little gems quite pretty and also interesting because I couldn't tell how they were made, not that I'm an expert in glass. Curiously, there don't seem to be any books devoted to glass cabochons. There are many on glass cameos, but that doesn't seem to describe these little guys, or other pieces like the mockingbird. I certainly wish someone would write one! I hope you will enjoy wearing them.
