Bёuy (pronounced 'boy') presents these small globe glass. These everyday wear, bubble looking glass earrings black are made of borosilicate glass which is not only light weight but also extremely durable (eg: glass used in laboratories and kitchenware). Posts are made from tarnish-free hypoallergenic surgical steel.
Modern techniques to create minimalism with an edge.
Inspired by rattle can splatter patterns, these handcrafted works employ a 0.2mm nozzle and needle to delicately hand airbrush and uniquely paint the borosilicate glass spheres from within. The glass is shock proof and lightweight, delivering a sense of ethereal minimalism.
Proudly designed + made in Melbourne, Australia.
Materials: surgical steel
Diameter: Sphere 14mm diameter.

Taë combines vibrant colours and contemporary techniques with traditional materials to create modern, accessible and affordable wearable glass art works.
