Beautiful Handmade Lampwork Glass & Silver Jewelry by Erika Price Designs

When you get a piece of Erika Price Designs jewelry in the mail, you know it is something special as soon as you open the package.

These exclusive designs are only available in Erika's shop, and most of them can't be remade or repeated. Many of the components Erika uses are one of a kind lampwork glass beads; this means her designs are also limited in quantity.

Every piece of this handcrafted jewelry is made by Erika herself, and she uses only the finest materials and components including fine and sterling silver, Swarovski crystal, artisan made glass beads, Czech glass, genuine stone beads, pearls and Vintaj Brass jewelry components.

Browse her fabulous shop to find luxe necklaces, pretty bridal jewelry, fantastic pendants, fashionable necklaces, fun to wear bracelets and stylish earrings. Every piece you buy in this shop ships free worldwide; there are no shipping fees added to the prices shown. And you can feel good about shopping here, because Erika donates 100% of the profit on every item she sells to charity (see her profile page for details).

This first piece is a lovely art glass necklace you'll love to wear! Erika's Deep Mulberry Rose Lampwork and Sterling Silver Necklace, Symphony Opus 23 is a color rich, sparkling piece that will draw admiring eyes everywhere you go! Made with the most amazing deep mulberry rose pink lampwork glass beads, this necklace is really special! The lampwork beads are accented with sparkling swarovski crystals and the metal components are all sterling silver. This lovely necklace is just about 18" long, and is finished with a sterling silver hook and eye clasp. Order it today - direct from the artist - for $95.00!

I love blue! These pretty cobalt blue dangles were handmade by Erika with vivid blue lampwork glass beads.

The Cobalt Blue Lampwork Glass and Sterling Silver Earrings, Sonata Opus 46 were designed in a beautiful, feminine vintage style with antique style sterling silver bead caps, beaded rim spacers, and Swarovski sapphire color crystals for sparkle. The tops are securely wire wrapped with sterling silver wire; and the hook style ear wires are also sterling silver. These earrings are a great deal at this low price - $25.00!

Next we have a pretty sterling silver and art glass bracelet made by this artisan. Erika's Fern Green Glass, Amethyst and Sterling Silver Bracelet, Concerto Opus 2 features sterling silver tube sections at the sides, with a handmade lampwork focal bead in a gorgeous fern green shade reminiscent of good quality peridot. This central bead is accented on either side with faceted amethyst rondelles, glittering Swarovski crystal beads and lovely picasso glass bead accents. This bracelet was made to fit a 7 1/2" wrist. Erika finished this pretty bracelet with a sterling silver heart shaped toggle. Only $45.00!

This last pair for today are made with genuine Vintaj Brass findings! The style and finish of these premium components is superb, and faithful to the design of genuine antique jewelry findings. If you love antique style jewelry, I think you'll agree - these are beautiful Victorian style Vintaj brass earrings!

Matte finish lampwork beads in a soft ruby red color are accented with wonderful glass beads in a complimentary color, dressed up with brass beadcaps and dangle from long Vintaj brass earwires. These are about 3" top to bottom and are quite substantial. All metal findings and components - including the ear wires - are 100% lead and nickel free brass. These pretty earrings are just $25.00.
