Handmade Glass Beaded Bracelet with Sterling Silver. Ocean. Beach.
Sky blue and sand stone colored glass combine with oxidized sterling silver beads make up this beautiful ocean inspired bracelet. A wonderful way to remember the day at the beach! The blue and sand stone colored beads are handcrafted in my bay area studio. They are strung beading wire. This is sterling silver over stainless steel and coated in nylon for durability. The silver beads and toggle clasp are oxidized sterling silver. The glass beads are around 12mm, the larger lentil shaped bead is 2cm across and they are combined with 4mm sterling silver oxidized spacer beads. They are strung on sterling silver heavy beading wire. The spacer beads and clasp are .925 sterling silver. This bracelet is 81/2" long and fits nicely on my wrist which is 6.5" This bracelet should fit nicely on a 6-7" wrist. It can be made larger or smaller, at your request! Simply request a custom length in your order comments.
A little background about my jewelry… I handcraft each glass bead in my studio with a torch and immediately put it into a kiln to stabilize the glass. This process of cooling or annealing usually happens overnight. The colors that you see come from glass rods that are melted and wound around a mandrel in layers and encased in clear glass for added depth. Many of my beads have fine silver, 99.9% pure silver, either in the beads or on the outside of the beads. This silver is specifically made for lampworking and comes from Italy. I primarily use Effetre glass, also from Italy.
