Every gal needs a hoop with a hunk of good color!
Here's the Festival version of what I believe to be the best dang dancing hoop out there. Antique Czech Glass Droplet beads from my local beadery, Bathing Beauties Beads, in Missoula, MT. Very excited to have scored such gorgeous beads with such rich history. These are solid glass droplets, and are a touch heavier than what you might expect, but are absolutely dazzling on, and my sensitive ears could rock these all day...and all night!
Did you know? Czech Glass beads are the breadwinners of beadmaking! Czech glass is old and special because of its deep history in eastern europe's hand in the honing of a beautiful art form known as pressed glass. Extraordinarily inventive, Czech glassmakers cultivated their own glassblowing techniques, and since the Middle Ages, have pushed the medium into the hands of artists around the globe!
These particular earrings measure . Cobalt drops are dusted in a gold lustre to give this shape just that much more dimension. Stunners. Solid glass so are a touch on the heavy side, but totally worth it!
