Alice’s Looking Glass Earrings

Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking glass is a fantastical land where everything is topsy-turvy.  The concept that all is not what it seems is apropos not only for our time period but our new jewelry design.    Here, hand blown Early 20th-Century English glass is gently held in place by the exacting tension between copper disk and Sterling Silver that also serve as the ear wires.
