Description

I was really excited to find a supplier for Vaseline glass beads! Basically, it's a UV reactive glass that glows like crazy when exposed to black light (please note that it does not glow in the dark). Here I've paired it with a Scherzo chainmaille weave, small rings made of steel for strength, and larger rings made of a lime green anodized aluminum that complements the color of the glass very nicely.

Vaseline glass is simply the coolest thing ever. You might have a mom or grandmother who collected Depression glass, in the era where you could buy a box of oatmeal and get a gorgeous faceted glass plate in it (seriously!). When those glass makers were in their heyday they made a glass with trace amounts of Uranium in it, and as a result the only way to positively identify Vaseline or Uranium glass is to hit it with a black light, at which point it will glow like crazy (what you are seeing in the picture at left). Want to see more about it? Go to THIS LINK and click on the pictures to see various pieces in regular and UV light. One of these days I'd love to have a curio collection.

It's been determined to be safe becaues it was made, not with the unstable element uranium but with the compound uranium dioxide. While it WILL register on a geiger counter, the readings are not high and it is not felt to be harmful.

This bracelet will not tarnish or turn your skin odd colors, and can be washed in soap and water. A wrist measurement is very helpful when ordering; otherwise I will make it somewhere between 7 and 8 inches.
