What's the long and short of it? This listing is for one 'Quincy' bracelet that will be handmade to order from new wire and recycled glass.
The Bettany is a wrapped-wire bracelet featuring one of the Big Purple Barn's handmade salvage-glass lampwork lentil beads.
Harvey Haines, owner and artist behind the Big Purple Barn, specializes in recycling glass of all kinds, ranging from car windows to wine bottles. The glass used to make the lentil bead on this bracelet was collected from the window of a mid-1940s Ford Sedan.
This bracelet can be made using brass, copper, or surgical-grade titanium wire, all of which are nickel free. The brass and copper are made in the U.S., while the titanium wire is made in China.
When ordering, choose your wrist size from the drop-down menu. This type of bracelet inherently has a slightly loose fit.
Want a different color of glass, larger or smaller size, another type of bead, or something else? Go ahead and request a custom order!
ABOUT RECYCLED LAMPWORK:
Instead of crowding this description with every possible fact about recycled glass lampwork beads from the Big Purple Barn, I've put together a simple primer that you can take a look at by going to the link just below this. I recommend at least skimming it before ordering. And if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
Your bracelet's actual color may vary slightly from what you're seeing on your screen.
Every bead is individually handmade to order without molds or presses. Size and shape will vary.
