#0427 Pearl Cross, Citrine, Moonstone Gemstone Bracelet
And so the story...
It’s a beautiful, petite thing – well, petite by my standards – meaning this bracelet incorporates components that are slightly smaller than those I usually use. When I saw these fancy golden-creamy freshwater pearl crosses, yes crosses, in Tucson they just jumped into my hand. The texture is similar to that found on baroque coin pearls. The citrine beads and peach moonstone gemstone beads play off the golden color of the pearls and the light beige color of the finest Czech glass pearls are a nice contrast to the lighter colored cross pearls. A center gold oval link brings all five strands together and is anchored with charms of 10mm Czech Jablonex fire-polished faceted glass beads that glitter with golden hints of light. Two styles of top quality gold-plate link chain add interest – you know me…I love things that complement but are not matchy-match.
Closes with an oversized easy-to-use gold-plate signora clasp. Measures 7 ¾” with one-inch extender. Because of the size of the beads and the number of strands the bracelet fits a bit smaller than it’s actually measurement. Lovely, really. Soft, feminine and interesting.
Handmade in the USA using domestic and imported components. From the Tanya Lochridge Jewelry Trunk Show Collection.
