This bracelet combines genuine turquoise nuggets, Tibetan mosaic beads, and brass accents to create a contemporary tribal look. The turquoise nuggets are a wonderful robin egg blue with some contrasting pyrite inclusions. The mosaic beads are created of brass, turquoise, and red coral and were hand-crafted by Tibetan artisans. I separated the mosaic beads and the turquoise with antiqued Tierra Cast rectangles and corrugated Hogan beads, giving the bracelet a look reminiscent of ancient Byzantine or tribal jewelry.
The bracelet is finished with a lobster claw clasp and a short chain which allows you to change the length to the best fit for you. It is adjustable from 6 ½ to 7 ½ inches. The end of the chain is embellished with a small antiqued heart locket which actually opens. Turquoise is considered a truth stone and is also believed to improve mental clarity. It has a tradition of protective qualities, and warriors attached turquoise to their arrows to ensure a true aim. This bracelet with its lovely turquoise, mosaic beads, and tribal look is contemporary and unique!
