The Byzantine Bonanza

I told you I was loving this new Byzantine technique and would be using it often. I LOVE both of these bracelets - two totally different glass art beads (mine) for two totally different looks. The byzantine lends itself so easily to any style, enhancing the look significantly. Makes you kinda want to get started on you own, right?

Newest Bracelet Design

I love this new design! In fact, this is the bracelet you'll often find on my own wrist. Beautiful reactive glass is used in all these beads. Pure silver high lights are in the center of the focal which is surrounded by a beautiful hammered sterling silver ring. Several different applications of this particular design effort are offered ranging in price from $60 to $120. If interested, please email me for a picture of what's currently in-stock.
