This one is made from a solid, work hardened sterling wire and holds a rose cut yellow beryl and a sparkely white, titanium coated druzy in heavy silver bezels. There is a solid 18k gold ball soldered next to each stone. The simplicity of this bracelet looks great on its own or stacked with other bracelets from your collection.
"Pure beryl is colorless, but different impurities can cause different colors. Emerald and aquamarine are both types of beryl. Beryl has been thought to improve energy as well as promote creativity. It has been used as a talisman for artists and in fact, a beryl ring was worn by Leonardo da Vinci. It has also been used as a stone for protection while travelling.*
Druzy refers to a thin layer of crystals that forms over the surface of a stone, often inside geodes. This one has been coated with titanium to give it that 'aurora borealis' or rainbow effect. Made one at a time in my Sonoran desert studio." - Linda Blumel
