Adjustable Bracelet Green Lampwork Glass Crystals Gemstone Handmade
This adjustable handmade bracelet features a light emerald green lampwork focal, clear Czech glass semi-iridescent beads, Swarovski crystals, and silver-on-copper fancy swirl rounds. The lampwork focal is a smooth-edged bicone (or diamond) in shape and has small touches of .999 fine silver banding its mid-section. It was handmade by Charlotte of CoverGirlBeads on Artfire, and is quite lovely.
The Czech glass beads are similar in shape to the focal but slightly smaller. Their edges are also smooth, and there is an aurora borealis-type metallic finish on one facet that gives them an iridescent shine at certain angles of light. They seem made for pairing with the lampwork glass bicone! So do the silver-on-copper swirl rounds, which were made in India and have a sparkly ornate look due to their "stardust" texture and shiny cut-away swirls. They and the Swarovski crystals (4mm bicones, clear with an aurora borealis finish) help make this bracelet especially pretty and versatile, fun for casual wear or a dressy occasion!
There are also green adventurine gemstones in this bracelet, which add an extra pop of verdant color, and bright silver-plated TierraCast (made in the USA) daisy spacer beads.
The bracelet is designed with the lampwork focal bead at the center; then on either side is a silvery swirl bead, a Czech glass bead between small green adventurine rounds (4mm), another swirl bead, a larger adventurine round (8mm), a crystal bicone (4mm), and two medium-sized adventurine rounds (6mm). All the beads except the two medium gemstone rounds have daisy spacers between them. The bracelet is finished off with a sterling round (3mm), a sterling silver twist crimp, another daisy spacer, and a silver-filled wire guard. The latter helps to protect the beading wire, which is high-quality 49-strand "bright" wire.
The clasp is a one-half-inch-long silver-plated lobster (nice size for easy latching, and it is connected to the main bracelet by an oval TierraCast jump ring. The extender chain, which allows for adjustment, is also connected with an oval jump ring and is silver-plated. At its end is a small dangle of silver-filled wire with a crystal, a small adventurine bead, and a handmade spiral (carefully hammered for strength).
Lengthwise, the basic (smallest) size of the bracelet is 7 1/2 inches. The extender chain measures about an inch. Please see my photos, which include a composite picture of various elements, including general length, lobster clasp, and chain sized by a ruler, as well as a picture of the bracelet with a penny for a size comparison of the beads. A second size comparison photo shows the bracelet's entire length, including the extender chain. I have a wrist size of about 6 3/4 inches, and the bracelet is loose on me but not uncomfortably so. I would not recommend this bracelet for anyone with a smaller wrist size than mine.
The bracelet comes in an organza bag, perfect for gift giving and fun if the bracelet is for you! All in all, this is a lovely handmade one-of-a-kind bracelet.

These earrings were even more beautiful in person than I envisioned. The seller provides excellent communication from the time you order until the product is in your hands. Shipping was very quick and the earrings were wrapped beautifully with lovely note card. When you order from Pretty Gonzo, she makes you feel like you're receiving a gift from an old friend. I can't recommend this seller enough. Her jewelry is excellent quality, and her customer care is outstanding.
