Sparkling pink bracelet, made with small glass beads and sterling silver. Fun, sparkles in the sun!
Dazzling pink glass beads are made with dichroic glass over black glass, in my home studio. In the sun, they really shine. The color shifts depending on the light to purplish and a lovely yellow/orange tint. The pink beads are combined with 3mm sterling silver beads and strung on sterling silver coated steel beading wire, and closed with a sterling silver toggle clasp. The bracelet is 7 3/4 inches long (19.5cm) and fits close on my 6 1/2 inch wrist. This would be a good fit for a 6 1/2 to 5 1/2 inch wrist. It can be made longer or shorter on request.
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.
