A young newlywed commissioned this customized sterling bead-clasp bracelet for his bride. He requested including their two kittens, Annie and Midnight, and to use the colors that Maxfield Parrish, the new bride’s favorite artist, favored. I found these cobalt shades, sometimes called Parrish blue. Note the dark blue left center bead with white dots, a unique hand-blown piece from an artist in Estonia. Though it may look like it, no two glass beads are exactly alike even when the artists try to make them uniform…and note in center right, the twin kittens. Added is a pretty blue painted glass charm. Let me know if you’d like something similar with your own favorite touches. Just be prepared for perfect strangers asking you where you found your bracelet.

Is there anything more crisp and pure than white? Perfect for a summer afternoon picnic, lovely on a bride. White at night creates visibility, for example if you plant a white flower garden you can enjoy your flowers in the evening. Same with this bracelet, eleven lovely white murano glass in two patterns, and notice how the silver compliments white like nothing else. Five pearl rondelles float amongst the cloud-like white, while sterling silver puff hearts hold the light. A trio of pearl charms dangle with style and greace to set off the silver and the multi-hearted sterling lock bead. If you enjoy compliments, stand prepared to be noticed. This sterling silver bracelet lights up a room.
This black beauty has lots of color yet remains as classic as the little black dress every savvy woman owns. You can wear it anywhere, anytime. Twelve gorgeous black murano glass beads catch sparkles of light and are set off by ruby crystal rondelles all around the sterling silver bead clasp bracelet This makes the look so classicly chic. And most enchanting are the three oversize black, flowered-painted, beads..don’t ask me how she did this, but the artist painted floral still lifes under glass. The large flower beads were discovered in Tasmania..Taz to the locals. You will keep this bracelet forever to pass on to the granddaughters.


When I’ve worn my own version of this bracelet, women grab my wrist. The merlot color, deep rose, gets to them but also the abundance of silver. This model is dedicated to all things marine: sea shells, fish, conch, cockels, a wonderful perfect shrimp, and I am going to add a seahorse for a true bouillabaisse,. Ruby rondells show bling, and gold painted glass and gold vermeil silver beads guard the treasure. I’ve even found some silver seaweed. The bracelet and bead clasp are sterling as are all the silver beads. The glass art beads I found in The Netherlands.


Eight new-leaf-colored murano glass beads welcome Spring and the Summer beyond. Tiny apples bud green on four appleblossom white beauties set off by sterling silver beaded spacers and complimented by six Hopi design sterling beads. Featurette: Murano glass encloses a flowering bud charm dangling its colorful promise. This bracelet would look pretty encircling a wrist at the end of the sleeve of a creamy white shirt or silk blouse, even a cotton tee shirt, on its own or mixed with your other silver bracelets. Each of these glass beads is a work of art and no two are exactly alike. they are slipped onto a sterling silver bracelet (.925) with bead clasp. And to bestow love and a kiss, the sterling silver lock bead wears the hearts on the outside. Idea: order extra beads to slip onto hoop earrings, and/or a silver chain. This bracelet is sized to fit most wrists, but send me your wrist size anyway.


Envision bridesmaids holding bouquets of daffodils and mimosa blossoms and wearing this beauty… a June wedding full of hope and promise and a bracelet designed so that you could almost detect the scent of forsythia down the street sending out plumes of buttery yellow to herald the clear skies and sunny days of summer. The lovely hue of this bracelet looks pretty on any skin shade and the artglass beads represent all the element of a blossom — the soft yellow of the petals, the subtle pink of the deep center, and the fresh green of the new leaf. Featurette: two silver stars and two faceted crystals dangle hope and peace. All lined up on a sterling silver bracelet with a bead clasp and a two-hearted sterling silver lock bead.


I designed this beauty before the price of silver jumped to a new high. A very precious commodity indeed. Imagine the silversmiths in the Palace of the Borgias..would they have hammered precious silver into such textured designs and would Lucrezia have commissioned her ducal glass maker (Krissa of the Carolinas in disguise) to blow ornate goblets the color of the art glass beads shown here? Clear cerulean, opaque turquoise, iris, violet, poppy, rose, and pale green, linked together with serious chunks of silver. Silver lines and circling dots, swirls and beaded spacers weave through the glorious color while silver lock beads, and a bead clasp hold everything in place. . I love this bracelet; I feel powerful when I wear it. And, just for fun here is Orson Welles’ quote about the Borgias:

“Remember what the fella said: in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.”

A beautiful gift sure to please, a piece of jewelry to cherish and pass on to new generations and something to treasure forever. Order extra jade for earrings or a beguiling necklace.
