Default Glass Bracletes/Bangles Inquiry

I really love bangles and was wondering if solid glass bracelets similar to the ones that some artist make out of boro be made out of soft glass?

I've bought them at gems shows from India out of soft glass. My friend loves them.

Well, that tells me it can be done but now I wonder if those are handmade or machine made and what I would need to make them?

Default Bracelets

Yes, I make glass beads and string them with crystals and silver spacers with no problems. Even made some on head pins and dangle from chain with no breakage. Must be kiln annealed of course. Dianne

Here's one video, there are more- some are much longer.

If you do any fusing, you can make bracelets with a bracelet bender mold, tongs and your fused glass. They're pretty sturdy and enough space to decorate. Or frit...haven't seen that one before. The first couple rows here-

Hoping this is okay, Jacquiline Parks has this posted on her Facebook page which is an example of the strung type soft glass bead bracelet.

Scroll way down past the hearts to see it.
If this is a no no posting this , I apologize. Dianne

I make glass bangle bracelets from frit that I cast in the kiln. No torching, but at least it's soft glass! I use only Bullseye. If I knew how to upload from my ipad I could show you a pic, but I've given up! Jeri
