Primary Description: 
Bracelet. Translucent deep blue and opaque white glass; wound, spun, tooled, applied. Bracelet or arm ring; circular, with decoration in relief completely covering outer surface. Decoration consists of continuous band of seven lozenge-shaped motifs alternating with seven pairs of triangular motifs bordered by two cordons. Lozenges occupy center of band and apexes of triangles touch at center. At center of each lozenge and apex of each triangle, one roughly hemispherical boss. Cordons are decorated with intermittent, fine white zigzag trails; one cordon has trails opposite triangles and the other has trails opposite lozenges. Triangles have similar trails on each side, but not on base, and one edge of bracelet has two similar trails outside cordon. Bosses are encircled by white trails.
