Fruit Salad Bracelet Red & Green by Devon Guild Member Penny Carter
This vibrant glass bead bracelet by Devon Guild member Penny Carter will brighten up any outfit.
Glass beads are individually designed and handmade by Penny. The quality and immediacy of the use of colour attracted her attention initially. The techniques that Penny uses are very similar to hot glass blowing. Glass alters from a liquid to a solid as temperatures vary, responding to forces such as centrifugal movement and gravity. Penny likes to paint with the liquid glass.
Penny has spent ten years living and working in the south of France, and it shows. Her rich Mediterranean colours are inspired by the vibrant hot colours of the Garigue; from prickly pears to pomegranates, from green lizards to caterpillars.
This bracelet measures 19cm long and is at varying widths due to the different sized beads which range from 0.5cm to 2.2cm wide.
