statement bracelet green turquoise Nepal turquoise coral brass inlay
Incredible tribal statement bracelet!
This powerful bracelet centers around a green turquoise 25x18mm lightly domed flat rectangle. Each piece of turquoise is unique, with colors ranging from bright to mid-aqua emerald green, and with brown, gray and black mineral inclusion veining.
I epoxied a hand-made 14 kt. gold-filled spiral coil to continue the flow of this talismanic shape used in the Nepalese charms. The wire coil is a symbol for the mysteries of the universe, Labyrinth, inner searching, and female sexuality.
The two charms from Nepal are green turquoise and red coral inlaid in a brass base, handmade using centuries-old techniques of jewelry and art design. The teardrop is 1/2" wide x 1" long x 1/4" thick (12x25x6mm) oval, and the circle is 3/4" (20mm).
Both the flat turquoise teardrops and the flat irregular chunks come from a mine in Nevada. I bought this turquoise from the guys who mined it and cut the beads! I rarely get to meet the stone cutters -- and I don't know any other miners -- which makes this beautiful turquoise all the more special. Greenish turquoise with brown veining teardrops are about 12x15mm. The light avocado chunks average 10x12mm.
14mm gray-black coin beads are hand-knapped obsidian. The smaller beads are bright turquoise chunks and carved flowers, and black onyx.
The bracelet is finished with a 16mm twisted rope design vermeil (22 kt. gold over sterling silver) toggle clasp. 8-1/4" (21cm) long, but I can adjust the size to fit your wrist.
All construction is meticulously wire-wrapped in 14 kt. gold-filled for beauty and security.
