These pastel earrings are made with glass beads. Topped off with a crystal, then a mermaid glass bead. These beads seem to be a clear frosted color, but they catch the light and reflect the light into different shades of blue. They can be difficult to photograph, but they are stunning to look at. About 1.5 inches long. The mint bead on the end is faceted and has some pretty subtle sparkle.
