Theme & Variations on a Glacier

There are three bracelets and a pair of earrings in this series reflecting on the movement and colour of water and arctic ices. Each glass bead is created in the flame using four different layers of glass melted into one another and mingled as the glass cools and melts, not unlike ice. Metal facets and chips of ice evoke the shine of sun on snow.

The first piece was created for the East Central Illinois Development Corporation (www.ecidc.com) 2012 Silent Auction,  creating an impression of ice wrapped in water, including a touch of adventurine to add a bit of sparkle in the light.

The third piece was designed to be a concept piece, a show piece. The idea actually sparked during a Big Bang Theory episode.
