#2221 "Victoria"


"Victoria" is named for the sterling silver, antique 3 pence coin/charm dated 1899 which is included in this bracelet design. It is an actual coin from the Victorian and Edwardian periods in England. The coin features Queen Victoria on one side and I use it as a charm in this design along with another antique charm of a carriage lamp - the sort of lamps you would find at each side of a horse-drawn carriage door. A bright sterling rose charm done by the famous Karen Hilltribe silver artists of Thailand adds to the floral display of the design which includes a sculpted pale pink tulip, a pink sculptured peony, an amazing encased pink blossom under thick clear glass and a smooth etched daisy-on-pink-swirl lampwork button shaped bead.

The pink floral theme of the bracelet recalls the beautiful and charming neighborhood, gardens and parks of Virginia Woolf's Bloomsbury district in London. Virginia and Thomas Woolf lived and wrote in their London home in the early 20th century. Although her life was complex and crippled by depression and emotional stress, Virginia lived in a lovely, peaceful pocket of London where she enjoyed the intellectual companionship of a circle of writers, artists, family and friends.

'Victoria' is a two-strand bracelet made with curated studio lampwork glass beads, sterling and gems all done in shades of white, clear and pink and dripping with the bright silver shine of handcrafted and ornate sterling findings, charms and components. For a piece so loaded in handcrafted lampwork beads, I drew upon the talents of several esteemed glass artists located both here and abroad. You will find a plethora of shapes and sizes of lampwork, some squares, some slices, rondelles, rounds, encased, etched, hollow and textured. You will find over 12 hand-torched lampwork beads made by 7 different artists. Along with so much .925 sterling silver and lampwork beads, you will find luminous Baroque pearls capped in sterling beadcaps along with faceted pink amethyst nuggets, a clear iolite (stone of the Vikings)briolette, Blue-Fire Flash moonstone discs and rondelles, faceted pink cubic zirconia teardrops, Swarovski rondelles with crystal imbedded in sterling adding points of elegance throughout. You will find a Swarovski cube, faceted rounds, bicones in a variety of sizes, button pearls, bright sterling wavy beadcaps and chubby glass furnace cane beads done by the esteemed glass artist David Christensen. A beautifully ornate solid sterling silver tube bead provides a LUXE focal point and whose folds of sterling texture add depth to the floral theme of the bracelet. Several other SS rings, beads and components finish 'Victoria' which closes with an ornate sterling silver floral toggle-clasp which has Victorian style.  

'Victoria' measures 8.5 inches in length and can be resized at no additional charge. Subsequent re-sizings will incur a $25 fee plus the cost of return shipping.

#2222 "Tidepool" Lampwork & Gemstone Pendant

'Tidepool' is designed around a stunning encased & textured lampwork bead called 'Ocean Within.' This focal bead is created by an esteemed American artist and the 'tidepool' genre is considered her one of her signature-beads. No one quite makes sea-themed beads as well as she does and I am always thrilled to work with her creations. Like most of the curated lampworkers I use, the artist who creates these incredibly complex beads is in a league of her own. The rest of the composition of 'Tidepool' is designed around this focal bead and includes a bright sterling silver starfish (with hollow back), a luminous Baroque pearl capped in a bright sterling daisy beadcap. A beautiful organic bead done in blues under clear glass further suggests the depth of the sea. You will also find a collection of gemstones including:

* Green amethyst faceted heart briolette

* Quartz faceted briolette

A hand-cast sterling silver figure-eight finding completes the pendant which measures 1.75" in length as a cluster. 'Tidepool' is composed of all-sterling silver findings and components.
