I have a thing for birds, they are beautiful. One day I wandered into a marine supply store and instantly I froze. I heard the unmistakable sound, that whistle, chuckle, cawing of a parrot. I headed down the aisle and there I found her perch and Coco sitting on it happily dancing away. Coco had one phrase only which she repeated over and over and over until I'm sure it drove her people mad. Me, it amused the heck out of me. Coco could only say this:
"I'm so pretty!"
My hands made this Coco mini bead bracelet. The beads vary in size from 8mm x 6 mm to 10mm x 8mm. The bracelet closes with a sterling silver toggle clasp. The bracelet measures approximately 8" and fits a medium size wrist.
Each bead is individually made by me! I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. All my beads are kiln annealed so that they are durable, thoroughly cleaned and inspected.
Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
