B673NA “ANCIENT DAYS”
The rich natural colors of this organic bracelet really speak to me, with ancient rough cut baltic amber that sometimes washes up on the beach in natural chunks, old polished slices of rutilated quartz, antique trade beads and seabed fossils. The large, elegant focal charm reflects all of these element and served as a challenge to find compatible additions. This charm is made of Royston Ribbon turquoise, a beautiful stone with just a touch of blue turquoise set in a decorative signed sterling setting, and the charm hangs about 1.5″ from the bracelet band. It is flanked by 2 dangles each with small onyx and sterling charms, then there are the polished quartz charms, small sterling two-sided conchos, larger sterling conchos , the chunky amber, pretty two-sided sterling freshwater fossil charms and finally the fossil sea snails. I’ve added nugget charms of picture jasper and old trade beads. This is a very full 8.25″ bracelet and the band is very special. It is made of natural beige and brown turquoise, wonderful natural stone slices in varying colors, with sterling spacers and 2 wrapped and folded hand made sterling beads. The clasp is a hammered sterling toggle clasp.
