Pastel Blue, Yellow, Pink Lampwork and Crystal Bracelet Earrings Set
Happy spring! When nature is a canvas of pastel colors your mind goes to the upcoming Easter holiday reflected in this pastel lampwork bracelet and earring set. The semi-transparent lampwork coins really reminded me of Easter eggs when I first saw them. The lampwork glass beads are a puffed coin shape with a semi matte background. Some of the glass beads have blue and yellow flowers, some have pastel swirls of yellow and blue and some are striped and dotted with pale pink and light blue stripes. Separating the lampwork coin beads are antique silver flower shaped bead caps. Towards the top of the bracelet I used two large Preciosa light rose crystal rounds. Around each side of the bracelet I added smaller Preciosa aqua crystal rounds. The crystals will pick up and reflect sparkle as the light hits them which is perfect against the almost matte finish of the lampwork glass beads.
The bracelet is finished off with moonlight twisted tornado crimps produced by Via Murano. Sterling silver wire guards were used to protect the turquoise Soft Flex beading wire. This will ensure longevity and prevent wear. For the closure I used an antique silver heart shaped toggle produced by TierraCast. Via Murano, Soft Flex and TierraCast are all based in the United States and each has a strong reputation for quality jewelry findings and supplies.
From end to end the bracelet measures 8 inches or 20.3 centimeters however, due to the size of the lampwork glass the inner diameter is actually 7 inches or 17.8 centimeters. This is the size you want to look at when you are purchasing. Make sure you measure for an accurate fit before purchase. Measure your wrist by using a flexible measuring tape, measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" to 1 " (1/2" is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear. These bracelets cannot be re-sized.
The earrings were made using the same pastel lampwork glass beads along with pewter beadcaps. The earrings will dangle from hypoallergenic leverbacks which will always hold the earrings secure and prevent loss.
Gorgeous handcrafted lampwork beads are a real treat. They are trendy and always in style. The charm of the lampwork bead is that no two are exactly alike. To create these fabulous works of art, narrow rods of glass are melted with the flame of a torch, wound around a mandrel and turned until the desired shape is formed. While the glass lampwork beads were purchased from Austin Hamilton beads out of Canada, they are not produced there and appear to be imported.
Wearing your beautiful lampwork bead creations will always be enjoyable if you care for them and take some caution with them. Since they are made of glass, breakage could occur. Removing your jewelry immediately after use will extend their life and your wearing pleasure. Handmade lampwork jewelry creations are certainly worth the extra effort in cleaning and caring for them. You will be able to wear them for many years. You can clean your lampwork beads with a soft cotton cloth that has been lightly dampened and then towel dry.

As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
