This piece has to be seen and touched to be appreciated at its best! I hammered 12 G aluminum wire, to the desired wavy frame design, and then I wove the beads and pearls with stainless wire. There is a lot of weight in the pearls and ancient glass, so I used aluminum because of it malleable disposition, it's light weight, and because it looks and feels like hammered silver. And it never tarnishes either. For protection against loss, I added a magnet clasp. I like the added security it brings to the piece.
This ancient Roman Empire Era Glass has a sense of mystery, intrigue and mystique. I love the story it tells of ancient times, peoples and cultures, plus it feels phenominal....it tingles when I hold it. I used to design a lot of things out of artifacts and very old pieces, and there is nothing like the energy of the ancient past that is locked in the glass.
The cuff is 2.25" at its widest point. The pearls are freshwater pearls, and I used stainless wire so that it will never tarnish. If your wrists are extra large or extra small, please convo me and I can make one to fit your special size. My wrists are just under 7" and it fits me.
