I've been on a bracelet kick lately! This is unusual for me, because I usually tend towards making necklaces and earrings. This latest bracelet is made up of a sterling silver chain embellished with electroplated faceted druzy rounds, faceted labradorite, teeny tiny Swarovski crystals, and ginkgo leaf charms. To bring it all together, I used a swivel lobster claw clasp. (Which, by the way, I can't sing the praise of the swivel lobster claw high enough. They make putting on bracelets easy-breezy!)
This bracelet has a surprising amount of shimmer and sparkle. The wire-wrapped dangles really give this bracelet a lot of movement and it makes the facets dance!
When I initially set out to make this bracelet, I was just going to focus on the stones. The more I looked at it though, it needed something. I had these great little ginkgo leaf charms and I thought they were just perfect. The ginkgo leaf is a symbol for longevity, endurance, and strength. They are also representative of hope and peace. As we embark on another new calendar year, I think these are all good things to carry with us.
