I admit that I never thought I would make jewelry with Lucite. Then I found some 80 year old vintage Lucite beads. After so many years, they develop chatoyancy, a cat’s eye phenomena seen mostly in gems and translucency. Their reflectance can be seen across the room.
I did not shy away from pairing these amazing gems with sterling silver.
I listed them today on my Etsy shop, SusanDolphinDelaney.
Lucite is light weight and waterproof, perfect for the office and the beach.
I was lucky enough to buy some beads from a visionary lamp work artist from Luxembourg. One pair seemed to have eyes and reminded me of DROIDS. Another seemed to have been excavated from Ancient Crete. It made me wonder if there were droids even then.
I just added these and six other items to my Etsy shop, SusanDolphinDelaney. I hope you will visit and see if there is anything there with your name on it.
I make Luxe Jewelry for busy women who want to put on their jewelry in the morning and forget about it until they take it off in the evening. However, I build into each piece fascination. If you are stuck in a boring meeting or on a long call, you can look at your pendant or one earring and discover all of the unique features in it.
When I opened the package with these two remarkable Basha Bead tubes, I immediately “saw” this necklace.
The Basha beads begin with pink and silver, move to aqua and silver and finish with shade upon shade of silver. I used a single large Swarovski pearl as the center of the design. I strung the Basha Bead tubes on tiny silver beads for flexibility and finished the necklace with plump lavender rice pearls.
A remarkable, nature-loving metalsmith created this nest of twigs from brass. She half-silvered it, giving it the look of golden dawnlight on snow. I hung an icy blue Basha Bead from the nest.
The bead dances with every shade of silver and of pale aqua. The pendant is 2”.
This pendant necklace will be a great companion in a long meeting, as you study the half-silvering of the nest and the mystery within the Basha Bead. I hung the pendant from a 1.3 mm 18” sterling wheat chain.
