A beautiful commination of colour and materials. Black agate gemstones, white mother of pearl and iridescent abalone that displays blue, green, black and white hues. Beads are strung on nylon coated stainless steel wire for strength and durability. The stainless steel toggle clasp gives an industrial chic, modern look. (FREE) gift wrapping options and material information and pearl care tips are detailed below.
This bracelet will be resized to fit you. Please see the second to last picture on how to measure your wrist. Alternatively, you can send me the length of another well-fitting bracelet you own. Please place this measurement in the personalization box when ordering.
WHY A TOGGLE CLASPS/WHY NOT A STRETCH BRACELET?
Stretch bracelets are made possible by elastic. Elastic is cheap and weak. It will rot, and when combined with gemstones, will break. The edges of the holes in the gemstones continuously cut into the elastic, weakening an already weak material and causing it to snap. I therefore refuse to use elastic in my designs.
Toggle clasps are easier to close and open than lobster clasps, especially if you have larger fingers.
Lobster clasps are possible, please message me if this is your preference.

WHY THESE MATERIALS?
Both mother or pearl and stainless steel are non tarnish and will keep their colour for a very long time, if taken cared for properly. Please see the section below on mother of pearl care.

MOTHER OF PEARL & ABALONE CARE:
– Mother of pearl and abalone are delicate and can easily scratch if roughly handled. Wrapping them in a soft cloth or silk bag when storing.
– Clean immediately after wearing with a soft damp (with water) cloth, chamois or microfiber jewelry cleaning cloth.
– Do not use harsh chemicals when cleaning mother of pearl.
– Mother of pearl and abalone should be kept away from hairspray, cosmetics, perfumes and fake tan since these products can damage them. Always put on your pearls on last after perfume and cosmetics have complied dried out.
