Lightly hammered handmade silver stacking bangles with charms
A pair of elegant slim handmade sterling silver bangles with a beautiful lampwork glass charm. Lightly hammered for texture and sparkle, these silver bangles are caught together with 2 handmade charms - a lampwork glass bead and a pure silver star. The glass charm has beautiful rich purple and violet shades with a slash of blue around the core. The bead is decorated with little droplets of pure silver and coated in clear glass.
Lovely bracelets which look equally good on their own, or worn with other stacking bangles.
Available in 2 sizes: Small - 2 1/2 inches (65 mm) Medium - 2 3/4 inches (70 mm)
Bead approximately 12 mm (1/2 inch) wide.
Contemporary lampwork glass jewellery by glass artist and designer Carolyn Grant.
Handmade in my home studio in Cheshire, England, I create sterling silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads. Formed in a hot flame using a propane and oxygen powered torch, each lampwork bead is individually handmade and unique. My lampwork glass forms the focal part of my jewellery designs, each one a tiny little work of art. There is something hypnotic about working with hot glass, manipulating it in the flame and using a combination of heat and gravity to control the flow and create something beautiful. I learn something new every time I fire up my torch, and hope that my fascination with glass translates into my jewellery.
