Inspired by a pair of shorts I have made of Marimekko cotton. Marimekko, the Finnish design house known for brightly coloured fabrics, simple styles and a fabulous 60s vibe. This bracelet is inspired by a pair of shorts I have made of Marimekko cotton.
My hands made this Marimekko inspired bracelet. The beads vary in size from 12mm x 10 mm to 15mm x 15mm. The beads are separated with sterling silver beads and the bracelet closes with a sterling silver toggle clasp. The bracelet measures approximately 7 3/4" and fits a small/medium size wrist.
My hands made these beads. I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. All my beads are kiln annealed, thoroughly cleaned and inspected. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. 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.
