And so the story...

When I originally bought these stones at the Tucson Gem Show, I thought they were rainbow obsidian. However, when I got them out in the natural light later that day for a closer look, I realized that they were actually golden obsidian. I was thrilled, wanting to do cartwheels all the way to the car! I love all obsidian – it is like a gazing ball and very magical with flashes of color and you can actually see into the depth of the stone.

Golden obsidian might be at the top of my favorites list in the obsidian group and it is usually the most difficult to find. I have read that obsidian may help those who wear it cope with negativity and keep you centered in unstable times. I like that. In addition it reminds you to not resist change and it gives you emotional stability in times of high stress. We’ll I’ll definitely take all of that; but bottom line is the gemstone is just gosh darn pretty!

For this design, I paired the golden obsidian with softly faceted, yet natural looking, clear crystal quartz gemstones and the loveliest natural cream freshwater baroque pearls. (And, a shout out to my oh-so-helpful niece who so patiently goes through mounds of pearls and gemstones in Tucson to make sure we get the best! She's the queen o' the pearl!) If that isn’t enough, you’ll find interesting brushed silver semi-cubes laced throughout. Tossed with the finest quality Czech Jablonex fire-polish fancy faceted glass rounds and a bold linked chain with a slight antique silver feel – the overall look is nothing short of stunning. (While the pix above is of the necklace, I included it here so you can see the magic of golden obsidian -- same gemstones used in the bracelet.)

This is a big look – the obsidian stones are just about one-inch square and slightly puffed. The pearls are 11 – 12mm and the crystal quartz gemstone nuggets are about one inch long. So the individual components will definitely get noticed! And, word of warning…you’ll get noticed too! So be prepared to answer questions because you know people will ask. The bracelet measures 6 1/2” and the three strands come together with an oversized lobster clasp. Not to worry – it’s very secure. I’ve added a 1” extender chain which means it will fit most wrists. This piece is a good option if you have tiny wrists and still want to wear bold looks.

I’m thinking that when you open the package I will almost guarantee that you’ll be thrilled with the overall splendor of it all. I know, I know – I should be more humble about my designs. But I just can’t help myself – this one is gorgeous and a bit unusual. I can’t wait to hear your response and see a pix of you styling it your way. Making you happy and feel good about yourself is the best part of what I do!
