Mint Green Calcedony and White Coin Pearl Sterling Bracelet, Mint and Pearl Bracelet, Chalcedony Bracelet, Chunky,

I've been drooling over these gorgeous faceted minty green Calcedony gemstones at my local supplier for quite some time, and just now sucked up the courage to actually buy them:) While I was breaking the bank I added on AAA grade white coin pearls which are just beautiful with their thick nacre. Creation time!! I strung these gemstones on 19 filament beading wire interspaced with sterling silver daisy spacers. Then for a fun end dangle, from the extra sterling chain I hung a 6mm Swarovski crystal and extra white pearl.

Tip to tip bracelet measures up to 9 inches and is adjustable to close as short as 8 inches. Inner diameter is, of course, a bit smaller because of the size of the beads. Clasp is 925 sterling silver. Chain and daisy spacers are also sterling silver. Tiny pearls are white Swarovski pearls. Crystal is Swarovski.

Note, that you'll see two separate bracelets. I have not yet posted the toggle clasp style, but it's still available if you're prefer this bracelet which is a bit shorter at 7.5 inches in length (smaller diameter of course). See ensemble here.

Choose bracelet alone or add on necklace and/or Chalcedony earrings for a full set! Necklace is the same stone on a sterling silver filled 18" chain. Earrings as shown fall from 1.5" sterling silver filled kidney wires. Leave me a message at checkout if you'd rather have curved french hooks or leverback style. Or see these AAA White Coin Pearl earrings here which are the same pearls as I used in the bracelet.

Long Silver and Black Czech Glass Statement Necklace, Extra Long Silver Czech Glass Messy Wire Wrap Necklace, Statement, MagpieMadness

Love this gorgeous, head turning extra long necklace. You can adjust to your comfort level by where you affix the clasp. Love. This is a new type of Czech fire polished glass where the artisans add color on top of matte black. In this case, the color is a copperish silver. You can pick up faint hints of pink.

I wired to matte silver chain for a long sexy swingy feel! Wear long or doubled.

These beads have a lovely eye-catching sparkle. Perfect for a nightclub, evening out or even dressing up your jeans every day. I wore the one I made for myself with a pale minty green sweater from Banana Republic and light gray linen slacks. So many complements.
