Blue Green Boho chunky sterling silver & lampwork glass bead bracelet
Handmade one of a kind bohemian style chunky sterling silver .925, green aventurine gemstone and artisan made green blue boro lampwork art glass beads wire wrapped charm bracelet - Calm
** This bohemian look chunky handmade bracelet best fits a wrist of 6 1/2 to 7 inches (16.5 to 17.8 cm)
** Artisan silver charm bracelet length is about 9 inches (30 cm) including the .925 silver lobster clasp
This sterling silver .925 wire wrapped bracelet is composed of multiple feet of sterling silver wire, artisan made blue and green borosilicate lampwork art glass beads and wonderful green aventurine gemstone nuggets and beads. Each bead is connected to the others with sterling silver. I've also wrapped one of the pale green aventurine beads in a mobius inspired silver knot. This unique bracelet will stay put too, because I've paired a hand formed hook and a substantial sterling silver lobster clasp. The blue and green shades are really calming, aren't they?
While the length on this artisan silver bracelet is a bit longer, due to the chunkiness of the beads used, it will best fit a wrist about 6 ½ to slightly more than 7 inches in circumference. The wrist in the photo shown is 6 ½ inches.
It's important to me that your handmade lampwork glass bead bracelet arrives just as beautiful at your house as it left mine. I'll carefully pack your handmade bracelet in a decorated gift box, wrapped in bubble wrap. Then I'll ship it inside a secure padded mailer to your door.
What is a mobius? Wiki defines it as a surface with only one side and only one boundary component. A model can easily be created by taking a paper slice and giving it a half-twist, and then joining the ends of the paper together to form a loop.
NOTE: The lampwork beads I purchase are from self representing artists (SRA). This means that the artist that has sold the bead to me is actually the artist that created the bead with his or her own two hands. It's important to me that, when possible, I know where the components I use in my jewelry are created. Plus, it's always a benefit for me to support other small business artisans in their work. Well, and the fact that the colors and shapes and designs of artisan created beads just aren't possible in mass created factory made beads.
Additionally, the quality of properly kiln annealed artisan beads far outweighs that of factory made beads. I've not had breakage or cracking issues with artisan made beads. This is pretty common for factory made beads, especially those manufactured overseas and not properly annealed after firing. If I sound like I'm on a soap box about this, I apologize. I simply want to ensure that you receive the very best quality components in the jewelry you receive from me.
So what is a lampwork bead? Generally, lampwork beads are made by melting and working glass over a flame, generally some sort of torch. Different tools can be used by the artist to make different shapes and there are a myriad of different glass colors that can be used. And even though they are made from glass, well made, kiln annealed (or hardened) lampwork beads are extremely durable. I've dropped beads many times, without breakage. However, even with their durability, if you drop your beads on cement or a tile surface, they can and do crack. Treat them as you would any other piece of art.

** INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS
** Most of my packages shipped to destinations outside the US take around 2 to 3 weeks to arrive. However, international mail, and each country's customs can be unpredictable. You should allow as much as 6 weeks for your package to arrive. **
International buyers have the option to purchase International Priority Mail which offers delivery confirmation as international first class does not.

International buyers may also elect to purchase a Registered Mail option with Priority Mail shipping, which tracks the progress of the shipment along the way and provides insurance on the contents.
Please advise me if you wish to pay to have your purchase shipped via Priority Mail for delivery confirmation, and also let me know if you would like to purchase the Registered Mail option for point to point tracking and insurance. I am not responsible for non-delivery or damage during shipping if you choose to have your item shipped first class without insurance and tracking. Sorry.
