#0535 Amethyst & Crystal Quartz Bracelet
And so the story...
By now you have to know how much I love gemstones in their rough state. That being said – this three-strand bracelet is made up of rough amethyst and crystal quartz. As a complement, I’ve used faceted & polished 12mm light amethyst beads. All of the amethyst stones have “garden” in them, which means they are not completely transparent. The dark amethyst gemstone nuggets are quite large – so if you are looking for a petite dainty bracelet, this might not be the best choice for you. However, if you are in search of a bracelet that will get noticed and still has a feminine touch, then this could be just the ticket. When I design pieces I like a touch of contrast – so the finest quality Czech Jablonex glass specialty faceted glass beads catch the light in an unusual way that plays against the rough nature of the gemstones.
This bracelet looks great alone – in fact, the three strands when lying flat next to each other measure 1 ½” in width. But, that doesn’t stop me from stacking on a few others with it. There's lots of room between your wrist and your elbow, right? I’ve given you some styling options here – knowing all of you, I am sure you’ll come up with ways to wear this beauty that truly make it your own. The bracelet closes with an oversized nautical style c-ring clasp. Be sure you hear a click when you close the clasp. The bracelet measures 8” but because of the overall depth of the stones used, it fits a bit smaller than a flat 8” bracelet your fit. Don’t ask me to explain – it’s some mathematical thing that simply stumps me – but I know that it is the truth! I’ve included a 1 ¼” extender so there are lots of sizing options.
