The bright colors of Central America.
For the necklace and the bracelet the colorful Murano glass beads (Ø 14 mm) have been drawn on jewelry wire. Both can be closed via two matted, gold plated silver rings (925 sterling silver), one of which can be opened. The necklace can be extended with the longer than normal bracelet.
Shape, color and beauty of these beads are acquired by individual handwork under the flames. Due to its high proportion of aluminum oxide, the glass material used is nearly unbreakable. This is the only information that the manufacturers are prepared to provide. The composition of their parent material or the color formulas remain closely guarded secrets. The only aspect we can explain is the shimmering: broadly speaking, a fine gold or silver foil is laid over the bead blanks, which were separated beforehand from the glass rod and serve as a foundation for a further colored glass layer. For the so-called water-colored beads a copper-bearing powder mixture is added in a particularly complex process.
