Gorgeous lilac/amethyst purple bracelet made with lamp work glass beads by Etsy artist SoozBeads. These are highlighted with Indian Bali barrel shaped beads, purple druzy quartz, Thai silver, amethyst, and Swarovski crystal. There is central group of charms featuring a lilac freshwater pearl, amethyst a and silver leaf and flower and then a beautiful simple elephant at the clasp. What's not to love?

They have been thoroughly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability and are made using Italian lampwork glass that has been specifically made for ornamental beadmaking.

You could mention about the carbon dioxide air bubbles trapped in the glass beads, The Indian barrel beads with fine filigree work, the perfect elephant from Thailand hand fashioned along with the leaves and flowers by the Hill Tribe in Chaing Mai. And then if you run out of those you could talk about the healing powers of amethyst or Google how druzy quartz gets its colours.
