From the gems and antique English enameled silver buttons, mentioned in my last post, I have fashioned the Hibiscus Bracelet. Over five hundred hand-wrapped tiny faceted rondels have been fabricated into this thick rope. Almost minimalist in its feel (at least compared to my usual design aesthetic) the simple rope of London Blue topaz, aquamarines and neon blue apatite, each placed on a sterling silver ball headpin, is adorned by a single perfect enameled blossom placed next to the silver hook and ring clasp. A counterweight at the clasp is the beautiful dot finished London Blue topaz drop. Loaded with gemmy sparkle, the bracelet drapes beautifully on the wrist with a pleasant heftiness. Simply elegant ... and the first in a series of gemstone rope creations to come!
