Clearwater Green Cuff
Created by Velina Glass
Since relocating to Tampa, the artist's jewelry has taken on the the colors of the translucent Gulf of Mexico. The Clearwater Translucent Epoxy Resin cuff bracelet becomes luminous with the addition of light showing a hint of what lies underneath enveloped in a universe of beauty. The artist combines custom color pigments inspired by the colors found in the waters of Clearwater Beach. The challenge with this design is to create a clear view from surface to wrist. In order to achieve this quality, after completion, the piece is hand sanded for 3 hours to create a finish that has the feel of silk, the translucency of vellum, and an appearance that is luminescent.
