Each strand is one of a kind. I scatter a few non matching beads here and there because I never want my pieces to be "perfect." Much like all us gorgeous women - chic, modern and imperfect.
You'll see in this strand, the sapphire crackle has one sapphire bean bead threaded in. There's also one smoke heart bead. Can you find it?
A strand like this one takes approximately 20 hours to create, design and hand make.

Artists flocked to this famous Bauhaus studio creating innovative designs using glass and color.
Each gold trim bead was painted with platinum then 24k gold. Almost 100 years has given the gold a satin sheen.
During WWII the factory was bombed reducing it to rubble.
It was decades before the beads were found in the debris making these glass art forms rare and precious.
