What is ‘Lampwork Glass’?
Patricia melts glass in an oxygen propane flame at temperatures in excess of 2000° F. Then they are individually torch-blown or kiln-fused and properly kiln-annealed for five hours or more. Annealing the beads makes them hard as rocks; durable for everyday wear with long lasting, heirloom quality.
Watch Patricia’s Video demonstration:
Dichroic glass has multiple micro-layers of metal oxides which gives the glass dichroic optical properties. Multiple ultra-thin layers of different metals (gold, silver), metal oxides (titanium, chromium, aluminium, zirconium, magnesium) and silica are vaporized by an electron beam in a vacuum chamber. The coating that is created is very similar to a gemstone and, by careful control of thickness, different colors are obtained.
Silver-infused glass: There are essentially two types of silver glass: reducing and striking. ‘Reducing’ produces beautiful iridescence while ‘striking’ yields most of the color spectrum.
The stones we use: Many people are taken aback by the beauty of the gemstones and crystals we use in our designs. Be assured that all our precious & semi-precious gemstones, cabochons and beads, as well as crystal clusters, freshwater pearls, fossils and other non-traditional stones are GENUINE, unless otherwise specified.
How to measure your wrist for a bracelet
To determine your wrist measurement, simply measure your wrist around the widest part of the wrist bone with a soft flexible measuring tape. The tape should be wrapped around the bone and pulled snug, but not too tight. Measurements should be given in inches. Ex: 6-1/2″.
From this measurement, the designer will add any additional length to the bracelet necessary for the clasp and will counter for the size of the beads in the design you have chosen.
