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.

Silver filigree clasp is new, but looks vintage; this patina can be polished if a brighter silver look is desired.
