I am in love with the beads in this bracelet! The "sugar" style textured beads are vintage, and from what I was told, they arequite rare. They have a frosted bumpy surface, with a deep maroon colored center...very cool. The two styles of art glass beads, are by Clare Scott, a talented, lampwork artisan from England. The fabulous silver gray imitation, glass pearls are vintage Miriam Haskell, an American, who designed stunning costume jewelry from the 1920's to the 1950's. There are also some super sparkly vintage Swarovski crystals, and a fabulous sterling silver, hammered toggle clasp. I embellished the bracelet with different sterling chains for even more interest.
