Finished length approximately 6 7/8“.

BEAD JEWELRY (Necklaces & Bracelets)
I use 104 COE glass for all my beads - Effetre (formerly Moretti), Lausha, Messy, and assorted silver reactives like TAG and Double Helix. I work on either a GTT Lynx or a Nortel Minor torch and use either my Arrow Springs A-18 kiln or my Toolbox kiln to digitally anneal every bead. Unless specifically noted, all findings (the little metal parts) are Sterling or Argentium silver. On jewelry that is strung, I use a multi-strand steel coated cable to ensure strength and durability. (I usually use SoftFlex or an equivalent product.) If I use a pre-made necklace chain, it is Sterling or Argentium. I often make my own “chains” using Argentium wire with beads. Accent beads are silver or Czech, Austrian, Japanese or other quality glass beads.
