Florentine Bracelet in Blue
Created by Dianne Zack
This opulent Florentine Series is reminiscent of the Old World esthetic, finely detailed and lush with tones of gold. Each transparent colored bead is embellished with delicate tracery of high-content silver reduction glass, which when carefully manipulated in the flame, yields a rich metallic luster. The beads are strung using a 49 strand braided and coated metal wire for strength. Findings and metal beads are high-quality vermeil, which is 23k gold over fine silver. Some variation in shading and bead sequence will occur, but each piece will reflect the same style and color palette. Each piece is individually handmade, and while the sequence of glass beads and style of vermeil beads will vary slightly from the image you see, the essence of the design will be consistent.
