Quartz crystal & beaded cuff bracelet - Moon rose turquoise - Huge Mermaid Treasure - Forged brass - InVintageHeaven
Mermaid Treasure - is what I call this bracelet as it has pale green aquas and pearls of the sea! Truly a treasure that any mermaid would be happy to wear!
I just adore working in copper and brass. It has a such a warm and organic feel to it. I created this brass bracelet with heating, patina and texture. I have finished it off with a hand rubbing of wax.
The large quartz crystal is encased in a freeform wire sterling silver and copper bezel. To enhance the with the natural tones of the stone and metal, I have added finishing touches of real aquamarine, dyed pearls, carved turquoise turtle, glass and more beads interwoven with copper wire. The woven centerpiece measures 2" high x 2 1/2" wide. Since the stone is so large, this creation measures 1" high off of the bracelet.
The bracelet is 1 1/2"wide. It measures 5 1/2" inside with a 1 1/4" opening. It is adjustable, but I do not suggest that is goes any smaller due to the weight of it.
