As promised, today I’m featuring the amazing Alex Cramariuc Elements Collection! These have just been restocked and it’s a great time to give a more in-depth look at the incredible designs. There are 4 pieces in this set, each representing a traditional element of the world: wind, water, fire, and earth. The ACA Kreations name for them are Aer, Aqua, Ignis, and Terra.
For those readers who are unaware of the backstory for how Alex created these charms; they were actually commissioned by a blind client who was concern about being able to distinguish between the jewelry pieces last year. Therefore, the designs focus heavily on texture and can easily be differentiated based on the tactile sensation.
All 4 are long tube beads, a style that Alex is become known for, and are very weighty and significant. Terra is cobbled and resembles a dry cracked earth. Ignis looks like a flame cemented in silver with the tongues of fire licking up. Aqua is very fluid and and tapered at each end flowing towards the middle. Lastly, Aer is probably the most popular in the set with heavy oxidized details and big swirls on the front and back.
The Elements beads are small core and will only fit on non-threaded chains like Trollbeads and *redbalifrog*. These charms are absolutely magnificent and it’s hard to find the right adjectives to describe how fantastic they are. They are available from Alex’s studio based in Denmark and can be found on his website ACA Kreations. Which one is your favorite? Are you interested in these pieces?
