Here’s a rich bracelet composition for the holiday season that feels festive enough to wear with your favorite little black dress, but simple enough to enjoy while schlepping about town in sweater and jeans. The soft teal and deep mossy green are natural neutrals for us here on the coast. We are are surrounded by every
possible shade of green all year round here and in a real way, it forms the backdrop for our life. Perhaps it’s for this reason that I see myself wearing this bracelet with practically any colour, from clean blacks, greys or whites to pink, purple, blue, yellow and so on. There are so many lovely beads on this bracelet, but the Golden Quartz surely steals the scene!
The Golden Quartz is so rich, so golden, so bright and so sparkly… it really is an exceptional example. In this design I’ve paired it with a juicy, maple syrup toned unique amber that contains a few fascinating flecks that sparkle nicely in the light.
As green can be such a basic neutral for me, I wanted to give this bracelet design a little extra grandeur, and so selected silvers that offer lots of drama. The new Spiritual collection for Autumn 2014 offers a gorgeous pair of silvers that fit the bill. “Spiritual Ornament” and “Spiritual Adornment” are very similar in size, and complementary in design, which makes them a popular choice to be used in tandem.
In addition, the gesture of using a pair “Lotus Top” to frame the central “Green Jasper” adds a touch of formality to the central core composition. Aren’t the matched pair of teal and gold glitter uniques perfectly delightful? They make me happy, just looking at them. Finally, The simple, deep purple unique at left beautifully echoes the glitter theme.
