Monday, August 2, 2010 pearl bracelets

There are several hand wired bracelets on my online store,, and more to come of course.  pearls are immensely popular; they never seem to go out of fashion.  we can wear them dressed up or down. teresat's signature NYMR (notyourmothersrosary) is handwired using beautiful shell pearls; the bracelets use a variety of pearls. different shapes, sizes and types of pearls. The triple strand white pearl i created for Nathalie, is an example of a teresat one-of-a-kind custom bracelet.  this particular beauty has swarovski crystal accents, fresh water pearls, crystal encircled baroque shaped pearls and a pretty crystal encrusted  initial. finished with sterling silver bar clasp; this design is also available in gold tones as seen above. this one with tiny 'button' pearls and larger beads encrusted with even tiner seed pearls. you can just see the freeform natural pearl i have also used here.  just gorgeous!
A very different look is this 'cuff bracelet' (below).  the central huge cabochon is a vintage opal glass bead found in Europe, where the ornamental glass bead industry originated. i have hand wired this piece using large glossy white shell pearls and have used textured glass vintage beads on each side of the centre. you can hardly see it here but on top of the clasp here is the shape of a bee, raised in gold atop of a silver base! very sweet! one of teresat's loyal ladies fancies this creation in other color tones that i am currently sourcing from Europe.  takes a couple of weeks, but it will be worth the wait!  ms s has requested a brown opal central cabochon with tonal accents used in the side beads. i have suggested using gold pearls to complete this rich, warm look.  i'm looking forward to creating it, and sharing it with you!
