DeVeer Designs

Each of the DeVeer Designs earrings is hand crafted in St. Ignatius, Montana by Barbara DeVeer using their own glass elements.  The artisans start with sheets of glass that they cut, often etch, stack and fuse in small kilns.  The final shape of the earring is controlled by both how it is cut and the amount of heat that they subject to it.  The layered, flat elements are fused at a lower temperature than the beads so they will retain their original shape yet bond together.  The beads are layers of glass that have been fully melted together to get their wonderful round shape. Each element is cooled slowly, submerged in water while being drilled, and then assembled into one of the many designs.   They use either original handmade sterling silver ear wires or traditional sterling or gold filled wires to complete the design.  The DeVeer earrings are light and comfortable to wear.
