Glowing Embers Lagoon cuff bracelet Hand crafted in Nova Scotia.
Each hand made glass stone is set on a silver plated cuff style bracelet.A new colour, Lagoon blends teal blues with soft yellows and greens, making this an extremely versatile collection.
Each glowing ember is designed one at a time. A base colour is selected and cut into a pleasing shape. Dichroic glass to complement the base colour is chosen and cut to fit. This may be layered with other dichroic colours or patterns, and is finished with a clear cap resulting in a tiny "sandwich" of glass, which is gingerly placed in the kiln.
When the kiln shelf is full, the glass is fired to 1480 F, at which point the pieces truly are glowing embers of red molten glass. After 15 minutes the kiln is cooled to the correct annealing temperature and held there to remove the stress that could result in breakage. Over the next few hours the glass slowly returns to room temperature.
Upon inspection, some pieces may be ground and fired again until the right effect is achieved. Only the best pieces make it into our line. A tiny groove is ground into the finished piece to hold the wire, and each is hand-wrapped by the artist with sterling or gold-filled wire.
Our jewellery line has been described as "elegant and unique". We avoid the cookie cutter tradition of just cutting up a sheet of dichroic glass into many small pieces insuring your customers will have a piece of jewellery unlike any other.
