Inca Roses

About this design:

I've named this piece after an alternative name for Rhodochrosite. The rose motif is echoed in the spacers and floral center bead. (This piece and comments was accidently deleted before. Please repost comments if you want)


Rhodochrosite flat teardrops 8 by 12mm, Rose Quartz chips, 6mm Lavender Jade, 8mm Cape Amethyst, fucshia Swarovski crystals, silvertone rose spacers, floral center bead, silvertone spacers, silvertone magnetic clasp

    KH – (re your comment) – I always use magnetic clasps for my bracelets now, since clasps can be so hard to do up with one hand.

    I was intrigued by the title and wanted to look…it is very pretty, and I never knew about the alternate name for this stone. :-)

    Alyson aka Kitty Chick says:

    Thanks Happy Chick:-) Rhodochrosite was used so much by the Incans that it picked up the alternate name Inca Rose
