Made in the wilderness of Colorado next to Mount Crested Butte in Colorado and inspired by the enchanting beauty of the Pacific Northwest. This piece is made with individually selected turquoise stones, freshwater pearls, and seed beads - strung on waxed linen cord using a Shambhala sliding knot closure. (Scroll down to find out more about the stones.)
Making this bracelet is like sewing beads onto string while putting together a puzzle. Unlike typical loom bead bracelets, the various sizes of the natural stones make each line of beads demand precision, innovation, and tightly sewn craftsmanship. Each and every stone is carefully picked out to fit its space.
This bracelet is adjustable to fit most adult wrists.
