Chrysocolla/Malachite Bracelet

One more link bracelet...
The main stone is really cool--the bright blue is a pool of natural chrysocolla, surrounded by layers of malachite. Two of the other stones are malachite, and one is turquoise. There are also 2 sterling accent pieces amongst the stones.

Sonora Sunrise Ring

Just so you don't think I've only been making bracelets, this is a pic of a Sonora Sunrise ring I just finished...

Sonora Sunrise Link Bracelet

This gorgeous red and turquoise stone is called Sonora Sunrise...or Sonoran Sunrise, or Sonoran Sunset, as I originally bought it. It comes from a copper rich area in Sonora, Mexico. There seemed to be a large amount of it when it hit the market a few years ago, and then the deposit ran out. I hope they find more someday!
There are reds, oranges, teal blues, blacks, and even a bit of white sometimes. The depths in this stone are incredible.
All the stones are Sonoran, except for the oval red agate cabochon. This bracelet is fairly delicate looking, and yet has a lot of presence with the color, and measures 7 3/4 to 8 1/4. This bracelet has sold.

Pietersite & Chrysocolla Bracelet

Another link bracelet, featuring brown pietersite and turquoise blue chryosocolla. Pietersite is a rare stone that comes from Namibia, Africa. This high-quality chrysocolla comes from Globe, Arizona. The mine collapsed a couple of years ago, and so is no longer available. I love this bracelet!
Sorry, this bracelet is not available.

Large Turquoise Link Bracelet

This is one of my latest link bracelets. Four of the stones are unusual turquoise cabochons, and the spotted one on the end is ocean jasper. The bezels are of fine silver, and all else is sterling.
The height on the middle stone is 2 1/4", and the length of the bracelet is adjustable, from 8-8 1/2 inches.
