Handmade Lampwork Shells

July 22nd, 2016

Shells 600x300 copyOur Handmade Lampwork Shells are unbelievably beautiful! We’ve made a pendant of a Lampwork Shell by adding a small crystal on a headpin, inserting it into the Handmade Shell and making a wrapped loop to string the Italian Mesh Ribbon through. We’ve used Gold, Blue, and Teal 6mm Italian Mesh Ribbon which we’ve ruffled. We’ve also added one straight strand of Gold 3mm Italian Mesh Ribbon to be the straight piece which will hold the weight of the Lampwork Shell Pendant so the mesh does not unruffle. Our Sterling Silver Ribbon Ends are squeezed onto the ends of the Italian Mesh Ribbon and a lobster clasp added for a finished look. This Italian Mesh Ribbon Necklace with one of our Handmade Lampwork Shells is easy, yet spectacular!

Our Italian Mesh Ribbon is the softest available anywhere!!

Ruffle, Twist and Twirl it to make extraordinary Jewelry!

Check out our YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/specialtybeads to see Jannell make a necklace with our Italian Mesh Ribbon.

We import this beautiful Tubular Mesh Ribbon from Italy. When ruffled the Metallic Mesh Ribbon creates what appears to be a Wire Lace. This Wire Mesh is also nickel free and waterproof. The wonderful thing about Italian Mesh Ribbon is that it can be ruffled or straightened, twisted, shaped into flowers or have beads inserted in the middle of it. You can string beads on the Italian Mesh Ribbon and add beautiful ribbons or strands of beads to it. Our Ribbon Ends squeeze onto the ends of the Wire Mesh Ribbon and then a jump ring adds any clasp to make your Italian Necklace have a truly professional look.
We also carry Titanium Mesh Ribbon which is a Stronger Mesh Ribbon that holds the weight of a pendant without needing an additional support.
Try it – twist and pull our Italian Mesh Ribbon to your own creative delight
