This gorgeous copper and glass bracelet is a unique Dragon Art Glass original.
It has been hand-forged from copper wire, and my own flameworked beads, with the addition of electric blue coated hematite spacer beads.
The transparent electric blue on these flameworked beads is stunning, and really helps to set off the white swirls and dots. I think it’s the colour I enjoy working with most. I’ve swirled and dotted each bead, making every bead different, yet matching.
Each flameworked bead has been wire wrapped with a swirl of thicker copper wire top and bottom of the bead, and the set of 5 beads connected by copper sailors knots. To add to it, and make it more comfortable to wear, I have used four pairs of electric blue coated hematite beads near the ends, and finished the bracelet off with a hand formed snake shaped strong copper clasp.
The blue and white beads are about 15mm each in diameter, and about 9mm in width.
The overall length of the bracelet is about 21cm including the clasp, which makes it suitable for a 7-7.5 inch wrist. It is also possible to shorten the bracelet by using the clasp to attach to the loops of different beads, so the bracelet is to some extent adjustable.
I love working with copper – did you know it has both anti bacterial and antiviral properties?
I make all the flameworked beads I use in my jewellery. The beads are kiln annealed, cleaned and used in my creations.
I also sell beads for you to make your own jewellery creations – so if you enjoy making your own jewellery then feel free to contact me to find out what bead sets I have available.
