Artisan Purple Ammonite and Handmade Sterling Silver Hollow Beads Bracelet

in: Bracelet



I am a huge fan of artist Susan Kennedy of SueBeads - she made these lampwork beads in the prettiest purple hues, accented with an ammonite on both sides! Perfect beads for the beach lover in all of us! I have added three of my hollow sterling silver beads to this bracelet.  A labor intensive process, each silver bead is cut from sterling silver sheet, heavily textured, domed, soldered, and holes have been drilled through the center.

Each lampwork bead measures approximately 20mm x 16mm about 3/4" round), and the sterling hollow beads measure 16mm round.  The beads have been wrapped in solid sterling silver. The bracelet fastens with a simple hook closure, wrought from heavy gauge, solid sterling silver, and fastens into any of the rings in the sterling silver extender chain, to which a tiny Czech glass bead has been wrapped to the final loop.

The sterling silver has been oxidized/antiqued , buffed, and tumbled to achieve to achieve a lovely patina and shine.

The adjustable bracelet measures 9 1/4" (23.5cm) and fits a wrist size ranging from 6 1/2" to 7 1/2"  (16.5 cm to 19.05 cm) in diameter.

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.
