Ripening Glass Rainier Cherry Bracelet
with Swarovski Crystals on 14/20 Gold-Filled

This Glass Rainier Cherry Bracelet features five of my glass Rainier Cherry beads. The glass rainier cherries are accented by Swarovski crystals in peach, golden and pale yellow as well as small green glass leaves. These Rainier Cherry beads were created one at a time by melting glass in the flame of a torch, so no two are exactly alike. Like real rainier cherries, each of these glass cherries has a translucent golden skin, a seam down the side and a tiny flower scar on the bottom. I generally make the cherries tart-yellow in color with a pale pink blush, but if you would prefer your rainier cherry beads to be sweet-ripe (medium pink blush), completely ripe (dark pink blush) or a combination of the above, just let me know when you make your purchase. The blush on each cherry bead is created by applying and melting in as many as 25 layers of transparent pink enamel (powdered glass). Because no paint is used the color of these beads will never rub, flake or chip off. The cherry has been formed by applying hot glass onto a looped copper wire stem so that the wire can never be pulled free.

For strength the bracelet is strung on 49-strand stainless steel beading wire with a green covering and it is finished with 14/20 Gold-Filled findings. The length of the bracelet you see above can be adjusted between 7 and 9 inches by clipping the lobster clasp into the link of your choice. I can also make the bracelet in a different length, with different clasp style or with sterling silver findings if you prefer - just specify your requirements in your email when you order.
