Tranquility



Artist Statement: TRAnQuiLiTY - Sterling Antiqued Ornate Bracelet - Tanzanite, Mystic Topaz, Prasiolite, Sky Blue Topaz

I have composed this design from scratch using various gauges of sterling silver wire. A filigree sterling bead has been added as a focal, wrapped with Thai tiny beads and genuine Tanzanite rondelles. The focal is a focal and clasp in one. Closing with a coiled swirly hook-clasp which has been adorned with a little baroque pearl. The chain features smooth briolettes of tanzanite, lots of mystic topaz full-briolettes, Prasiolite and Sky Blue Topaz rondelles on sterling hand-crafted pins. This is truly dramatic and unbelievably romantic creation! The bracelet has been heavily oxidized and after that it has been tumbled. This makes it a dark silver with strong shine!
