5 Fish Sterling Silver Bangle
Sorry, Temporarily Sold Out.
5 Fish Sterling Bangle is a super way to go with our boro
beads. Simply unscrew on of the ball-ends, add your beads
and screw the ball back on! When I use these, I use Bond
527 Cement glue to permanently attach the ball (a little
dab on the threads before you add the ball is all you
need) and you've got a permanent design! If you like to
change your beads, you can omit the glue step and switch
your beads whenever the moment moves you! I love this
bangle style, it's so easy to wear...just slips on easily
but doesn't come off until you're ready for it. Fits most,
it has enough play in the bend that it can be "squeezed"
tighter for a smaller wrist or "pulled out"
for a little more room.
The particulars...they are Sterling, 12 gauge wire (2mm)
and by far the best quality I have used in this style.
I have bought from several vendors....many of the bangles
that you see on the market (at a cheaper price) are hollow
and not nearly as strong as these. These are SOLID Sterling,
very sturdy and well made. We create our lampwork beads
on a 3/32 mandrel and they fit perfectly on this 12 gauge
If you decide to add accent beads (non-lampwork) to your
bangle, they will need to have a 2mm hole to fit. I have
found that High-Fired Greek Ceramics, Bone and Sterling
(Bali and Thai)beads easier to find than stones with this
hole size. I buy most of my beads via bulk buys and at
bead shows so it's a matter of just grabbing them when
you can. Unfortunately, we will not be carrying silver
beads (gosh, I can't take on another item to process through
shipping!) but you CAN find these beads through several
vendors, eBay sellers and at bead shows.
We are selling these slightly over cost so we will not
be able to include them in our wholesale discounts. We
are listing them simply because I was receiving DAILY
emails asking where to find them (and my fingers are getting
tired writing back to everyone! LOL!)...it's just easier
to offer them here so you can pick them up along with
your lampwork beads. Have fun with these, they are so
versatile with a zillion design possibilities!
an example of the posibilites! (Sorry, Beads Not Included)
