Howdy & merry Christmas y’all! This Texas-centric etched ball is uniquely blown with 100% post-consumer recycled Lone Star beer bottle glass! Crafted while keepin’ it weird & eco in the heart of Texas! This listing is for one ornament.
Living in Texas is hot work and blowing glass in Texas is seriously hot work! This requires us to drink lots of fluids, and one of our favorite beverages is Topo Chico mineral water. Besides the hydration factor, we love the gorgeous seafoam green color of the glass bottle and use it to blow glass pieces and also create beautiful lampwork beads.
The beads in this pair of earrings are made from beautiful amber Lone Star beer bottles that we have crushed, melted and then pulled into long sticks of cane. Dean works his magic on the lampwork torch to create these pretty little beads. Each bead is kiln annealed to provide strength and durability.
