Tuxedo Bracelet

About this design:

I was working on a different project and had the grey agate and smoky quartz on the table. i thought they made an elegant combination. I used simple heishi beads as accents because I wanted to keep it sleek and minimalist.


Smoky Quartz, Gray Agate, Rhodium plated heishi, hammered toggle clasp

    hey, Ex pert: my nephew is a computer programmer. Should I have him trace your messages back to your identity, address, cellphone number? Would you be so nasty if you weren’t anonymous?

    Hope the Lima team is aware of what is happening. If not, maybe it’s time to get them involved to keep the “unhappy people” out of the Garden?

    BTW; Jane, you’ve achieved your goal! Sleek elegance in this beautiful piece! (Love those heishi and rondelles!)

    Thank you everyone. I thought the contrast was so striking that I simply wanted to highlight it, Strong, sleek and elegant was my goal, hence calling it a tuxedo bracelet.
