Blue Lampwork Glass Bead and Sterling Silver Bracelet
A bracelet in my 'circles' design, featuring glass beads in irridescent shades of blue, wrapped with silver wire and encased in clear to magnify the swirling colours. I've used a kind of silver glass called 'Triton' to create these beads, as it can create some lovely irridescent, swirled colour effects. I never quite know what will come out of the kiln, which is half the fun!
I've wired the beads into a chunky stirling silver chain, interspersed with hand-hammered silver circles, closing with an oversized silver hook clasp.
This piece has been hallmarked by the Birmingham Assay Office with my maker's mark, the Birmingham anchor mark and the 925 fineness mark, in accordance with UK law for the sale of precious metals.
The bracelet measures 23cm (9") in total including a 5cm (1.75") extension, which means it can be adjusted to fit a 15-18cm (6-7.25") wrist.
