Gorgeous Alaskan fireweed was the inspiration for the colors in this beaded bracelet. It is an original design by innovative bead artist Stephanie J. Eddy, beaded by myself. The bracelet features four different sizes and types of glass beads. The button clasp is hand stamped sterling silver, so no two are the same. The second photo shows the clasp you will be receiving. The bracelet measures 7 1/2” (19cm). .

Numerous wildflowers grace the terrain in Alaska during the summer. Fireweed is certainly one of the showiest. (See the picture) It draws its name from the fact that it is most prolific in areas after a wildfire, another constant of Alaskan summers. However fireweed occurs in certain areas every year. It is one of the signs of summer. In fact, it is said that once the fireweed loses all its blooms, then summer is over.

This bracelet is a true collaboration as it combines my love of beading with Ron’s creative silversmithing. Beads have long held an attraction for me, as they do for many people. Fortunately, beadwork is a traditional craft in Alaska, so it was a good place to come to learn how to work with beads. Most days, there is nothing I would rather be doing than “playing” with my beads.

Ron was a self-taught and accomplished silversmith when we moved to Alaska in 1980. We were coming to live in the bush, so we sold all the jewelry making supplies and equipment. We didn’t think we would come to the woods and make a living selling jewelry. But that is exactly what we ended up doing. Life is rarely ever what you expect or plan… or is it?
