Furnace Glass


About this design:

I was unfamiliar with furnace glass, also called cane beads, until I ran across a listing for them on a popular venue. I ordered some and fell in love with them, so I ordered a lot more and made this bracelet. It's very heavy!

Components:

silver chain and findings, furnace glass beads, Swarovski crystals

    Oh, he makes the most beautiful furnace glass I’ve seen!

    This bracelet weighs about 7 ounces. Doesn’t seem like much until you’ve worn it for a while, lol.
