Imagine being transported miles away to seek out new adventures with these miniature hot air balloon earrings made using turquoise blue with white and yellow stripe hand blown hollow teardrop shaped beads.
The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology and was invented in 1783. King Louis XVI had originally decreed that condemned criminals would be the first pilots, but de Rozier (the second to man a balloon flight), along with Marquis François d'Arlandes, petitioned successfully for the honor.
I have created these vibrant hot air balloon earrings using hollow blown glass beads with vintage wicker baskets and pumpkin style bead caps. They hang elegantly from your choice of antiqued bronze french clasps or kidney wires. The hot air balloons are a nice size at 1.4 cm wide and 3.5 cm tall.
