B737NA “Spring Memory”
Amethyst, sugilite, and 2 vintage purple furnace glass beads form the band of this 7″ bracelet. I like how the 2 pretty furnace glass beads add interest to the bracelet in that there are never 2 made exactly alike, and how easily they blend with and enhance the sugilite rondelles and the faceted amethyst beads. The large round focal charm is made with green turquoise with lots of matrix, and each stone, large or small, is set with a fine little sterling sawtooth bezel. This charm hangs about 1.5″ from the band and it is signed “GV” on the back, I’ve added a little bundle of beads at the back just for added interest. There are 2 elegant sterling flower feathers flanking the focal charm, then 2 old/vintage Navajo charms, 1 with 5 large sterling raindrops in a simple setting, the other with a dark green malachite stone in a sterling feather setting. The next 2 beads were hand made by Barbara Simmon, well known for her fine lamp glass bead designs, rare now, and after that there are 2 green turquoise charms with elaborate sterling settings and signed “AM”. I have added 4 green jasper slices. all with interesting matrix patterns that compliment all the other colors in the bracelet, and the clasp is sterling with a feather toggle bar.
