B699NA “Ocean Blue”
This bracelet was an adventure. The beautiful sterling vintage focal charm with its elegant hand stamped pattern offered me a choice of colors for the rest of the bracelet: Lapis blue, pink coral and black onyx. Blue seemed like a good idea and so we have a bracelet full of fine Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan, pink Mother of Pearl, quartz, coral from the Mediterranean, jasper from China and lots of sterling silver. The focal charm is enhanced with a pretty sterling dangle and 2 small pink Mother of Pearl flowers at the band. This focal charm is flanked by sterling feathers. Then come the 2 sterling charms each with 14 little snake eye stones and each signed, then 2 sterling charms beautifully hand stamped and stones of pink quartz. I’ve added 2 vintage concho charms with little Lapis dangles and then 2 more Lapis charms, 1 a simple Lapis stone in a simple sterling setting, and a fine sterling Lapis heart charm in a hand stamped patterned setting. It is signed “925 Mexico.” I’ve finished with 2 small vintage sterling charms with Mother of Pearl stones. The band of this 8″ bracelet is a combination of 12mm round Lapis beads and little Lapis slices and the 2 center beads are sterling silver as is the interesting twiggy toggle clasp. You might think of this elegant bracelet as an international offering! So be it, and enjoy!
