About this stunning bracelet by juiceglass
This bracelet took a lot of time and joy in the making. Created with my own lampwork beads, jade stone, bits of seashell and sterling wire, it is a unique piece. A little girly, a little earthy, a little beachy!
Three pillow shaped lampwork beads are the bright center of the design. Each is flanked by seashell caps, which also are paired with glowing chips of jade stone on dangles. Sections of hand forged sterling wire create links between the lampwork beads, and the entire piece is clasped with a hand forged clasp, compete with a jade stone briolette dangle wrapped in more sterling wire. The entire piece was tumble hardened for hours, then given a rustic patina for an aged, finished look. Entire bracelet is a little over 7.5″ long.
All glass beads are made by me in Bullseye glass, a local glass company, and cleaned in harvested rainwater. All beads are digitally annealed for strength and durability.

Wendy Hacker-Moss: Over 200 large stainless steel florets are handfolded origami style and attached to a sterling silver chain. 4 mm blue fresh water pearls are set in the center of the florets.
In the process of creating, each flower is tended to carefully, worked and shaped by hand, and then securely attached to either a sterling silver hand-woven, linked or chain-mail base structure. Attachment is not haphazard or random, but rather repetitive and exacting with a gestalt sensibility, so as to create thickets of form from material. The process is meditative and prayer-like in nature.
Imbued with meaning, objects may carry history from one generation to the next–just as jewelry passed from parent to child may transmit history from one generation to the next. My intention is to create a lasting representation of that which in nature is fleeting. For me, this is a way to memorialize the ephemeral in a sturdy form.
