New Baby is coming!


About this design:

I made it for my daughter who is expecting and since they don't want to know the gender of their baby, I choose kind of neutral palette.

For this design, I choose the gemstones beneficial for the child birth and a t the same time , looking good together.... I also put larger jump rings with charms or crystals at the end of the bracelet about every 1/4" so the length can be easily adjusted...

I never posted anything on this site, but I wonder i might get other people's feedback about this piece before I send it to her... Good or not, doesn't matter, just let me know what you think

Components:

Silver plate chain, charms and findings, fresh water pearls, Moonstone, quartz, Peridot, Lapis, some other gemstone chips I cannot identify for sure
