Rustic Crab Agate Pale Orangish Antiqued Copper Bracelet SOLD

Rustic Burnt Orange Crab Agate Antiqued Copper Bracelet and Earrings





My parents worked arts and craft shows while I was growing up. Although they made and sold wooden candle lanterns, my heart was elsewhere~~I poured over the booths of natural stones, hand made jewelry, and frequented the lapidary's station. I love the natural formations of rocks and minerals, especially how agate looks after being polished. All the natural imperfections and striations in the stone were mesmerizing to me.

When I found these burnt orangish crab agate stones I knew I had to make something. I mixed in some freshwater pearls, white with the faintest tinge of pink, added antiqued pink Swarovski crystals, antiqued copper bead caps and finished with a copper toggle clasp. Perfection.

I have two bracelets~~each bead has its own personality~~a product of years of compression under the earth, the gem smith's turn of the wheel as it was being faceted, and coloration.

Bracelet as shown measures 8.5" in total length but with a smaller inner diameter. I typically wear a 7 inch bracelet and this measures a bit loose on my wrist. I can definitely add extra length to the toggle if you need it larger.

I didn't include a separate picture of the earrings, but you can see them in the background. Earrings are the same pearls, Swarovski crystals and bead caps. They hang from 1.5" copper kidney wires. Add on for a complete set.
