Bёuy (pronounced 'boy') presents these small universe glass earrings. These everyday wear, bubble looking glass earrings are made of borosilicate glass which is not only light weight but also extremely durable (eg: glass used in laboratories and kitchenware).
These contemporary glass earrings incorporate colours inspired by urban Melbourne Graffiti and modern technologies to create modern jewellery that is as strong as it is beautiful. Works are internally hand airbrushed in our Melbourne studio and posts are made from tarnish-free hypoallergenic surgical steel.
Proudly designed + made in Melbourne, Australia.
Materials: Hand-airbrushed glass, and surgical steel hooks.
Dimensions: length, 35mm. Diameter, 15mm

From a family of well-known Canberra based artists (printmaker father Jorg Schmeisser and textile designer mother Keiko Amenomori Schmeisser), TEa was born in Australia and educated in glass, ceramics, gold and silver in Australia and Japan. Taë combines vibrant colours and contemporary techniques with traditional materials to create modern, accessible and affordable wearable glass art works. Her work focuses on the often-overlooked beauty and humour in everyday iconography, language and landscapes.
