The name Cora means 'heart' or 'filled heart' so it was the perfect choice for these little, plump heart shaped beads. The limited edition coloured glass hearts are finished with sterling silver as a simple but secure hoop. To wear your Cora Earrings, twist the hoop sideways to open (see the final image). Once in your ear simply twist the hoop closed again and they will be safe there for as long as you want. Don't worry, each pair of earrings comes with a little card reminding you of the instructions. If you prefer a more traditional hook style ear wire just select the 'hook' option and your earrings will be made like those in the Langstone Lilac image. This style will also be supplied with plastic stoppers as no one likes losing an earring.
The Noviomagus Collection features a range of glass colours named after places local to Chichester (The roman town Noviomagus Reginorum) where my workshop is located. Choose from Hayling Ripple, Apuldram Green, Bosham Blue, Wittering Sand, Fishbourne Frosted, Medmerry Multi, Pallant Pearl, NoreDown Flint plus the NEW colours - Meon Mulberry and Langstone Lilac. Some of these colours are limited edition, once I've used that batch of glass there won't be any more, so your favourite may not be here forever
