Artisan Glass and Fine Silver Adjustable Bracelet

in: Bracelet



Artisan Glass and Fine Silver Adjustable Bracelet - The focal for this pretty bracelet features a gorgeous artisan made glass cabochon by Mikelene Reusse (Growing Edge Glass on Etsy). It measures approximately 22mm round (approximately 7/8")  and features a pretty splashes of pinks and greens on its solid black background ... the pink shimmers in the light! I hand stamped a tiny leaf pattern on the bezel (photo 5), and added some hand twisted sterling silver for added texture in this beautiful focal. . 

I forged the chain from fine silver.  The ends of each link are melted in the flame to form a tiny bead, rounded on a mandrel and finally, soldered closed. Making chain is truly a Zen-like experience!   The bracelet features a 1" extender chain, making this bracelet adjustable, and fastens securely with a swivel-style lobster claw clasp. A small yet beautiful artisan glass bead (by Jenelle of Beads and Botanicals) has been wrapped to the last link in the extender chain.

The silver has been hand buffed and polished, lightly oxidized and polished again, and finally, tumbled to achieve additional strength, shine, and a lovely patina. 

The adjustable bracelet measures 8 3/4" in length, and fits wrist diameter up to 8". All metals used in this bracelet are .925 Sterling Silver or .999 Fine Silver, and each link has been soldered closed for security.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
