#0368 Rhodonite Gemstone & Vintage Heart Soft Bangle
And so the story...
This bracelet, done in this color way, looks so much different than any of the others I’ve ever done. I am at a loss for words and searching for just the right way to describe it. The wire-wrapped beads that dangle from the vintage-inspired antique silver bead caps have a demure but flirty feel – a large vintage Czech glass textured purple heart and a purple flower set the mood. An oval rhodonite gemstone bead is quite unexpected and lends a bit of mystery to the mix while faceted and baroque-style Czech Jablonex glass beads complete the look.
Bangle rope bead colors include pinks, lavenders, teals, deep purple and grey – most in a matte finish but then a few silver-lined baubles lend a spark. My first thought was Carnivale or Mardi Gras – but the overall look and feel of the design speaks much softer than that. I think this bracelet would have been a favorite in Victorian times – a fav of someone who was a bit daring and wanted to make a statement in color. Bold, yet soft. The “rope” measures about ½ inch in diameter and fits an average wrist. Rolls on – so it’s easy and comfortable and lovely, lovely, lovely.
Handmade in the USA using domestic and imported components.
