I’ve had these briolette beads for quite along time. Wrapping briolettes the traditional way is not something I’m super confident with. Using them in this unique way seemed inspired to me somehow. The 18 gauge silver plated wire frames are open and elegant with the addition of one faceted bead. I usually use the silver plated wire to work out a design first before going on to sterling silver. This one has the same ‘feel’ and forging ability as sterling.
The two beads on the elongated frames are faceted glass and the smaller ones are very pale blue Chalcedony. Lots of movement, swing, and catching the light with these.
