I am happy to announce that I have been working on a more spare bracelet design using a double strand, similar to a wrap. It won't ever threaten to overtake my signature style, but is a wonderful addition to my collection. And, although I have the most wonderful loyal group of repeat clients for my lush, chaotic, luxe lampwork dangle bracelets...it has occurred to me that perhaps not everyone wants that much detail. Sometimes, for some folks, less is truly more. So, I am working with a design of two standed lampwork bracelets without copious dangles. The quality and the high-end beads/findings are the same, but the design is more spare and to-the-point. And, with luck, the price tag will be more manageable.
I work with a loyal, talented, top-notch group of lampwork artists both here and abroad, I am always on the look-out for new, cutting-edge, original glass designers. Recently, I came upon a lampwork artist whose work captivated and thrilled me to the core. Her signature design-point is what I call, 'mystic portals,' which are generous, raised bumps or round, plump circles of glass on the surface of a lampwork bead, often transparent and encased making for a complex & gorgeous bead. That said, I cannot seem to get enough of them and have designs stored to the ceiling in my head. The set I use here, is done in soft, luminous shades of pink, white and clear. Like a snowstorm, there are textures in the shape of ribbons, dots, portals all on an encased transparent pink glass over a pink core. Truly elegant. This set reminds me of a snowflake fairytale with all the secret nooks and crannies of a feminine, enchanted snowscape.
Companion beads are equally lovely & whimsical and created by other talented English & American glass artists. You will find uber-elegant 'spankle' beads - thick clear encased over a white core with wisps of white and sterling embossed droplets, buried into the glass, like so much finery. Beautiful, original work. There is also an ice cube focal, high grade baroque pearls, AAA quality blue-fire moonstone, organic encased pink/purple beads, lots of sparkling faceted quartz, Swarovski crystals in a variety of shapes and sizes, a chunky pink open square lampwork bead and lots of bright sterling silver rings, bead caps with Hilltribe and Bali beads in solid silver. Elegant and feminine for a pink winter's eve, wandering in the snow or in the village enroute to a party or just on a brisk walk. 'Pink Ice' is a gorgeous, sparkling artisan design meant to lighten your heart, your step and your spirit through the coming season of snow!
'Pink Ice' measures a tad over 8.5 inches in length and can be resized at no additional fee. This style is meant to be worn more loosely, more casually so the two strands inter-cross and mingle and move up and down your lower arm and not so tethered to your wrist. However, if you prefer a more snug fit, just let me know when I handle the length adjustment.
