Wild & Tropical Bangle
In this bi-metal bangle frosted lime green glass beads and black and white striped glass beads are distanced by hand coiled fine ( pure ) silver wire as they circumnavigate a copper bangle. The beads are from Ghana and are made with recycled glass. They are made with glass bottles and other discarded glass items that are worked into a powder which is then placed into molds. The beads are fired in a kiln which is made out of termite mound clay that is fueled with crushed palm kernels. I antiqued the fine silver and copper to create a patina which gives this bangle bracelet a rustic and soulful beauty. The round beads are 10mm and the tube beads are 20mm L x 10mm W. This bangle slips on over the wrist and is small/medium in size. The inner diameter is 2&1/2" to 2&7/8". Beautifully handmade here in my studio and beautifully affordable!
