A Lovely Combination of Lampwork Beads and Copper
Layers of brown and olive green changing to seafoam and light teal green, reminiscent of layers of sediment in rock! In fact, when most people see these gorgeous lentil lampwork beads, they ask, "What kind of stone is this?" Smiling, I reply, "It is a lampwork glass bead!"
This is was what captured my imagination from the moment I saw these beads! They were not your average run of the mill glass beads, but something with an organic ebb and flow to their design! My second thought was they would be perfect with copper wire, and with those two thoughts in mind, I purchased two strands of these awesome beads! Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end! This bracelet is made with the last of those beads!
The Sediment bracelet is made with copper wire that has been hammered for strength and beauty. Each element is lovingly constructed by hand, and will last for generations to come when cared for properly! The bracelet is 8-1/4 inches long, perfectly made for wrists 7 to 7-1/2 inches around!
