RETRO SAMPLE SALE

This collection is made up of pieces I composed, created, and formulated from the vision in my brain to forging with my hands that aren't quite there yet.
Either the composition is off or the collection isn't ready to be fully realized or I am still working on how to implement the structural forms.
AKA - I get really insightful about my collections until my brain hurts.  Then either I can make the pieces or they are "not quite right" ....
I am selling these pieces AT COST.  No extra sales cuz they are as low as Barry White's voice.

BAUHAUS BEADS

These beads are composed of hand blown German glass in the Bauhaus style during the 1920’s.  The innovative design studio was breaking ground in the new “Modernism” industrial ideology making art more vivid. 
Their bold ideas led the way to Impressionism, Pop Art  & Minimalism. These gorgeous beads range from interlocking oviform in frosted neon to multi-faceted round intense sapphire painted with 24k gold.  

During WWII the factory was bombed reducing it to rubble.  Designers vanished.  Molds broken.  It was decades later when the family went to rebuild, the beads were found in the debris.  
Since they cannot be reproduced, the beads are rare and highly prized.
 
My husband and I were traveling through Europe when fate intervened and we met the family over dinner.  By dessert, I had purchased as much of the collection as possible.
 
All retro jewelry is designed by Amanda Uber using the rare beads along with the principles of Bauhaus, Pop Art and Minimalism as inspiration.
