Peridot has been credited with a host of magical powers and healing properties, such as protection against nightmares and possessing the power to ward off evil. Not to mention that is a deliciously delightful light green!
My mini series are smaller versions of my popular pieces. Perfect as gifts! The glass bead measures approximately 20 x 20 mm. It hangs from a sterling silver box chain that is 16"-18". If you would like a longer chain, 18"-20", please leave a note when you check out.
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 transparency reminiscent of the ocean in sunshine. This is guaranteed to 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.
