teacher presents, part 4

About this design:

my daughter Amanda attends a wonderful public preschool that is a mix of regular and special needs kids. Amber is a special ed teacher who specializes in autism, and she has worked with both my daughters and helped them immensely. This bracelet is for her- I wanted to use several colors in a warm, earthy palette to represent her loving warmth and the "spectrum" of autism which can take on such different presentations in different children. She has been a true blessing for our family!


Rhodochrosite, Rhodonite, jasper, smoky quartz, stamped silver heart clasp
