THE DESIGN: A truly unique bracelet of various gemstones: labradorite, amethyst, obsidian and agate. The focal point is a hand-cut and hand-polished labradorite teardrop in a gold plated filigree stainless steel setting. Notice the beautiful and natural iridescent nature of the pendant with various hues of purple, blue, gold and green, punctuated by black striations. FREE gift-wrapping options and material information are listed 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 the length of another bracelet you already have that fits well.
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 and extender chains are possible, please message me if this is your preference.
Canada Post requires a phone number for international orders.
MATERIAL & JEWELRY CARE QUESTIONS:
I have a deeper understanding of most materials used in jewelry. Please send me ANY questions on materials or jewelry care that you have on sterling silver, silver, gold, stainless steel, brass, copper, nickel silver, gems/minerals (precious and semi-precious), natural pearls, nacre (mother of pearl), seashell etc.
WHY THESE MATERIALS?
Amethyst, labradorite, obsidian and agate are all mineral gemstones and will never tarnish. Stainless steel wire is not only used for durability and strength. It is also used because it too will not tarnish and it will not break like elastic. Please also note that since minerals are natural no two beads will be alike, giving truly unique pieces.

Your bracelet will arrive gift wrapped in a velvet or organza bag, regardless of if it is a gift or not. If it is a gift, please feel free to include a gift message. A handmade (by me) card and a hand written note will be included. Please see the last photo.
