#0490 Red Jasper, Czech Glass Vintage Link 3-Strand Bracelet
And so the story...
If you love the look of vintage, you’ll love this bracelet. Here comes the J. Peterman story. It was my final day in Tucson and I was leaving the venue or so I thought when these red jasper beads jumped out and grabbed me. Honest! While I told myself I was done shopping…I just couldn’t help myself. Once you hold them in your hand, I am sure you’ll see why I gave in to their charm even though my case was stuffed to the brim.
The color is magnificent and the polish on the ¾” beads is beautiful – clearly polished by hand. A machine doesn’t give a high polish like a good old-fashioned hand polish does and proof of that is right here. Complemented with Czech Jablonex fire-polished glass round beads in clear and an interesting faceted oval in a two-tone bronze-topaz colorway, the red jasper just glistens. Strategically placed antique brass beads and small Czech seed beads mix with the vintage brass double link chain and complete the vintage look. Closes with a top-quality lobster style clasp.
Measures 8 ½” but fits like a 7 ½” due to the size of the gemstone beads. I am sure that this bracelet will serve as your touchstone for the day – calming and relaxing you as you struggle to keep that alert look on your face through all those long meetings. Be prepared to answer lots of questions about the bracelet – it’s unusual and you won’t be seeing it just anywhere. In fact, there are only three exactly like this out of my studio. So, that means there are only three in the world! Heck, three in the universe! Makes you pretty special now, doesn't it?
