When Fire Mountain Gems sent me some mesh tube as a gift with my order, I thought they’d be quite stimmy as a shake bracelet full of small beads. Here’s our prototype mesh shake bracelet featuring Preciosa silver-lined ruby Czech glass seed beads and cherry red wooden bicones:
We keep picking this up to fidget with it. The bicones slide allowing the seed beads to be gathered together during wear or allowed free during stimming. The mesh has the qualities of finger cuffs: pulling on the mesh constricts the tube, pushing the mesh together expands the tube. This constriction and expansion allows controlling the cascade of the beads through the tube.
The magnetic clasp closes with a satisfyingly affirmative click and locks with a bayonet lug.
The resident chewer is giving this test piece a workout. I like chocolate brown and light blue together. This long chewable necklaces features graduated dark chocolate brown Magkuno wood rounds alternating with light blue, silver-lined Miyuki glass cubes. Two pearlescent and two matte food-grade chewable silicone beads in light blue serve as the focal . Graduated vintage silver Chanel ovals repeat for every nine Magkuno beads.
Gorgeous peridot green large twisted turbine beads alternate with hammered copper rounds and copper drums. These Czech glass fire polished beads consist of two rounded end pieces made up of twisted transparent glass accentuated with a contrasting reddish-brown picasso finish. The middle section is a faceted peridot band. A copper toggle provides closure.
3.5mm blue miyuki cubes with copper-lined holes space out 6mm x 8mm aqua green Picasso Czech glass faceted rondelles. A single Ashanti Ghana lost wax technique brass round serves as the focal, and a copper toggle clasp provides closure.
6mm copper filigree rounds and 4mm Patikan wood rounds alternate with swirling dark blue, light blue, brown, and yellow 12mm Ghana Krobo recycled glass rondelles. A 14mm copper round flanked by two 14mm blue Ghana Krobo recycled glass rounds serve as focal. A copper toggle clasp provides closure. This is a long necklace at 43in/109.2cm.
Patterned Silver Rounds in graduated sizes alternate with 8mm cobalt blue faceted Czech glass (with aurora borealis finish), and dark 8mm Magkuno wood rounds. A silver Karen Hill Tribe toggle clasp provides closure.
Dark 23mmx11m ebony bicones and Ashanti Ghana lost wax technique brass rounds alternate with light blue 4mm glass Miyuki cubes and 6mmx1mm Ethiopian brass heishi. A copper toggle clasp provides closure.
