#0542 Rhodochrosite, Rough Crystal Quartz Gemstone & Pearl Three-Strand Bracelet

And so the story...

Still one of my all time favorite rocks/gemstones – rhodochrosite. I was instantly drawn to these beads on one of my scouting adventures in Tucson – maybe because they remind me of the much tinier heishe beads from my early, early, early days of jewelry making. The color makes me think of strawberry ice cream – you know with no artificial coloring added – just real strawberries and cream. Yummy. Teamed here with rough crystal quartz gemstones (smooth but not slickly polished) and baroque cream pearls the bracelet has an overall frosty look. The highly polished link chain glistens in contrast to the frosted crystal quartz. Unfortunately, rhodochrosite is getting harder and harder to get. Every year in Tucson the inventory seems to be noticeable less than it was the year before which means that what I can get my hands on is becoming more costly.

Closes with an oversized C-ring nautical clasp, the bracelet measures 8” with a one-inch extender. And, once again, the size of the rhodocrosite and crystal quartz gemstones results in the bracelet fitting a bit smaller than the measured length. Please, don’t ask for an explanation as I am clueless! Worn alone it is beautiful; but it also looks great layered with bangles, stackables or other link style bracelets. Soft and girly but not in a Barbie pink kind of way. Your styling options are endless.

Handmade in the USA using domestic and imported components. From the Tanya Lochridge Jewelry Trunk Show Collection.

Ten percent of the retail price of this bracelet will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
