I can remember a time when I was quite small when the month of December was one of the longest in the calendar. Those days are long gone! Time is flying quickly toward Christmas Day and even faster to the day I leave for Africa. I have been busy with custom orders and all sorts of preparations, so I have only three bracelets today. The first is a Swarovski bracelet with five strands of Swarovski bicone crystals in Pacific opal, white opal, white opal starshine, white opal sky blue, violet opal, peach, tanzanite, and Montana blue. It features a sterling silver toggle clasp.
The next jewelry piece is a garnet bracelet with a very special large clasp with seven cabochon garnets bezel-set into the top. A few rose quartz gemstones are scattered throughout the five strands for a difference in colour and texture.
The last piece is a blue topaz bracelet that is made as a bangle with sterling silver hand-decorated tubes from the Thai Karen Hill Tribes. I usually make blue topaz pieces using London blue topaz, a darker blue, but I fell in love with these Swiss blue topazes because of their intense blue colour . They are faceted rounds set off by all Hill Tribes elements reminiscent of flowers and vines with a toggle that is made of leaves. All sterling silver.
