This striking one of a kind bracelet is made from smooth nuggets of red Crazy Lace Agate, together with beautiful handmade Tibetan red Agate beads capped in Brass, a pair of vintage brass beads and pale green carved Nephrite beads. The Tibetan beads are made by Tibetans living in Nepal, using methods handed down by generations of artisans. A wonderful combination of colors, textures and shapes. Perfect for all seasons. This bracelet is made to match the necklace and earrings listed separately (Item RMS4853). This bracelet was featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Jewelry Stringing Magazine!
Agates are very fine crystalline quartz and are very durable semi-precious gemstones. Since Agate is laid down by nature in layers, they are often found in creatively striped. Agates are found all over the world and since ancient times have been considered a powerful healing stone, often worn as a talisman or amulet. Generally associated with courage, prudence and strength of emotion. It is the stone for the Zodiac sign of Gemini, and also for the 12th and 14th wedding anniversary.
Nephrite is one of the two minerals in the Jade family. It is very tough and durable ranging in color from white to green to brown. It has a long history particularly in China and other parts of the Orient for making weapons, tools, decorative carvings and jewelry. It has a special significance to people of many cultures; in China is it a symbol of all that is good, embodying the Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice and courage. It is also highly regarded in Central America (Mayans) and New Zealand (Maoris).
