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.
Each mini bead is individually made by me! Each bead measures approximately 8 mm x 6 mm. They hang on handmade sterling silver ear wires for a total length of approximately 35 mm.
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.
