"cherished gift for a friend"

I have a pair these that I love. At first I thought they would be too large, but have realized they are just right to accent many outfits. I loved them so much I ordered a pair for a friend and she also loves them.

"Meaningful and meditative"

Somehow the big, black beads are calming and so relaxing. I have a lot of shiny and colorful jewelry but sometimes basic black is just right. Being black, it is also very versatile.

"Perfect."

Very beautiful, and well made. Thank you. Only thing I wish it had was a cap so I could take it with me, but since that was easily made it holds no meaning in the end.

"Wow! This is so gorgeous! An instant mood lift."

If this is glass it sure fooled me; these beads look like frosted quartz. These are not small beads. I think they are actually 12mm, but dont look or feel too big on. The multi-color cording makes this bracelet so outstanding. It reminds me of a vivid rainbow. I am sure to get lots of compliments when I wear it out and about. The macrame is excellent, and every bead is perfectly round and frosted. There are tiny black beads at the ends of the pull cords. I have small wrists so it is a little large on me, but I dont mind it sitting near the top of my hand. I have a 10mm bead necklace of hand-knotted, frosted quartz I can wear with this, but the eyes will be drawn to this beautiful bracelet. I think this bracelet would make great gifts for friends and it is very reasonably priced.
