Inspired by the Christmas display inside city hall on Lasalle Street in Chicago, IL, the Lasalle bracelet evokes the deep rich tones of the holiday season. It starts with vintage seed beads of glass made in Ghana, Africa. These beads are rustic cut, meaning they vary in width from 2 to 5 millimeters throughout the bracelet. This provides an authentic old world look around the wrist or neck. The beads are manufactured out of recycled glass and are extremely rich in tone. Paired together here they make a festive and individualized holiday season statement. The feature bead is a cloisonné bead, an ancient art of bead making using wire, then colored enamel to create various shapes or symbols on the bead. The cloisonné technique is very old and was commonly practiced in French, Byzantine and Chinese cultures. These particular beads are hand made in China. You choose from 2 different cloisonné beads. The first is a traditional wire wrapped bead with the peace symbol between red enamel. The second, and entirely different cloisonné technique, is a red and green enameled bead with gold guilded edging around a green star shape. We finish the piece with modern metal gold tone beads to highlight the cloisonné feature. A fitting accessory for your next holiday cocktail party or just a festive feeling day. 5 of each are available and please order soon. Our holiday collections sell out fast.

We gather our beads from all over the world, taking particular notice of those beads with culture, history and collectability, and string them on sturdy elastic cord.

Care instructions

Many of our bracelets include antique bone, horn and natural seed beads. All of these are susceptible to damage from excessive moisture. We recommend not wearing them while swimming or exercising. Our metal beads and some of our bone beads will patina over time. This is normal and the original color pallet accounts for the transition in tone.
