Shell and Copper Crystals Handmade Beaded Bracelet Clusters Adjustable

Details

This shell disk beaded bracelet is a fun and pretty handmade piece with dangly clusters of round shell beads and copper crystals as well as an extender chain that allows for adjustable sizing. The shell disks are copper and white beauties that measure approximately 3/4 of an inch around. Certain areas of their surface have a nice mother-of-pearl type of sheen, which can be seen in some of my photos, and their coloration has a dappled effect that reminds me of looking through water at a rocky seabed. Recently I used shell disk beads like this to make a pair of earrings (currently in my shop), and I enjoyed working with the beads so much that I wanted to make a bracelet as well - and one that would have some fun clusters to it. This is the result!

Other elements in this bracelet include white round shell beads (6mm and 4mm), Swarovski copper bicone crystals with aurora borealis finish (AB, 4mm, made in Austria), and small copper rondelles. The wire used is "Natural" copper-hued metal and tarnish-resistant.

The bracelet's design brings together a trio of disk shell beads with clusters of dangles made from the small shell rounds and Swarovski copper crystals. These dangles are gathered on copper jump rings between the shell disks, with eight dangles per cluster. Each dangle was carefully handmade (by me) using one shell round and one crystal bicone, with a gently hammered wire loop below and a triple wire wrap at the top. There are also triple wire wraps on either side of the shell disks, which are connected to one another via the copper jump rings that hold the clusters.

At either end of the bracelet strand, there is a jump ring on which are gathered four dangles of larger (6mm) shell rounds that have been paired with small copper rondelles. A connector with another larger shell round bead links the bracelet strand to the chain that I used to finish off the strand.

On one end of the bracelet, there is about half an inch of chain and then the clasp, which a copper lobster clasp. This clasp is nice, manageable size and measures about half an inch in length.

On the other end, there is about one and a half inches of chain, making the bracelet nicely adjustable. Decorative dangles are added to the very end of the adjustment (aka extender) chain. Please see my photos for pictures of the bracelet's ruler measurement as well as the extender chain's ruler measurement. The full length of bracelet, as you will see, is roughly 8 inches.

My own wrist is currently 6 and 3/4 inches around, and the bracelet attached best at the third chain link from the bracelet's beaded end. There was about an inch of "left over" extender chain.

I would like to note that the easiest way to put on this bracelet is to turn it with the back side up and all the dangles hanging down; then flop it over the wrist and attach the clasp. The dangle clusters should look similar to their arrangement in the photo of my bracelet on my wrist. The clusters will move around as your arm and wrist moves, and will not stay as orderly. In other words, they will be dangly. :) I found this fun, especially with the left-over extender chain dangling below.

All in all, this is a unique, one-of-a-kind handmade bracelet that is light-catching with the sheen of its shell disk beads as well as prettily eye-catching!

These earrings were even more beautiful in person than I envisioned. The seller provides excellent communication from the time you order until the product is in your hands. Shipping was very quick and the earrings were wrapped beautifully with lovely note card. When you order from Pretty Gonzo, she makes you feel like you're receiving a gift from an old friend. I can't recommend this seller enough. Her jewelry is excellent quality, and her customer care is outstanding.
