This beautiful and elegant pearl cuff bracelet can greet any season with style, but it particularly reminds me of winter, with its silvery, frosty keshi pearls, and the ice-like sparkle of faceted quartz. The entire piece is stitched by hand, beginning with a glass bead matrix into which pearls and quartz rounds are carefully sewn in. A silver plated clasp, with a vintage filigree pattern, is attached with metal rings. As well, a decorative border is beaded at each end that gives the appearance of little glass rosettes.
The overall effect is like wearing a piece of a richly embroidered textile from the past, studded with pearls and gemstones!
The quartz gemstones used are of the variety called tourmalinated, which means they have lovely needle-like strands in black (called inclusions) that can be viewed inside the crystal quartz. This is a beautiful effect, and makes it one of my favorite gemstones to work with. Some of the pictures should show this detail.
Note: The clasp is slightly tarnished, which I preferred because it went with the color of beads I chose, and the vintage appeal. But silver patina is very much a personal taste, and if you prefer, I can polish it up a bit before sending.
Length: Entire length is 7 inches. This makes it loose but still wearable for a small wrist, and probably perfect for a medium wrist. One of the pictures shows how it can be worn higher up the wrist on a smaller wrist.
Shipping: Shipping is free to domestic U.S. address; additional add-on features will be extra, such as expedited shipping, or insurance. International buyers please be aware that shipping charges will apply. See here for more information regarding shipping.
