They shimmer, they shine, they glitter! They are as if an opal collided in space with a bag of glitter. I've encased these in a heavy layer of clear glass to really make them shine. LOVE them!
My hands made this glitter opal bar bracelet. Each bead measures approximately 14mm. They are connected with sterling silver findings and squared bars and the bracelet is finished with a beautifully elegant sterling silver toggle clasp. The total length of the bracelet is 8" and this fits a medium size wrist.
Each bead is individually made by me! There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. Each bead is 4 - 8 layers of glass. Around layer 3 I roll the bead in fine silver leaf, then encase it in more glass. When the bead is large I mash it flat so that the silver disperses. This is what gives my beads the shimmering sparkle. This will light up a room and bring you oodles of compliments.
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.
