About this design:

This bracelet is named after my mother, because of the lovely cameo clasp.
I have used some gorgeous beads to match the clasp - Moonstone, Pyrite, Yellow Smoky quartz, Mystic Chalcedony and an adorable carved Magnesite bead.

Components:

Moonstone (peach), Smoky Quartz (yellow), Pyrite, Mystic White Chalcedony, Magnesite (carved), brushed sterling silver drops and bead caps, tiny fine silver beads and a Cameo box clasp (sterling silver),
