Sometimes simple is magnificent. Case in point – this magnificent yellow calcite and crystal quartz bracelet. My signature design is usually a three-strand, sometimes five-strand, bracelet or necklace. However, there are times when I sit at the bench in my studio and see a single-strand stunning design. This was one of those times. The faceted polished large gemstone nuggets of yellow calcite are so beautiful; I wanted to design a piece that showcased their natural beauty. Partnered with the glistening natural nuggets (don’t think tiny just because I used the word nugget) in clear crystal quartz gemstone and Florentine-finish “potato chip” beads of gold vermeil the look is lovely.
The yellow calcite gemstone is soft in color – not garish neon and the crystal quartz gemstone nuggets are reflecting pools and a bit mesmerizing – use caution when driving and wearing this bracelet! The sun reflecting off the nuggets is sure to get your attention! Yellow calcite is thought to spur intellectual capacity. I’ll take that. And, it is thought to boost energy levels – I’ll definitely take that!!! The bracelet measures 8 ¼” with a 1 ¼” extender. It closes with an easy-to-use large gold-plate signore C-ring clasp and a bead dangles from the extender chain. This particular bracelet is best for a medium to larger sized wrist. If you have a petite wrist, this bracelet may be a bit too long for your liking.
I’ve shown a few styling options. However, believe it or not, I happen to love this bracelet all on its own. It’s a stunning simple design that is sure to get your noticed.
