This bracelet consists of a lovely piece of lapis lazuli framed with a double strand of brass wire in intricate swirls and whorls. This sits atop a stamped copper band and is adjustable.
I'm fascinated with where Mother Earth gives up her gemstones. Lapis lazuli comes from mines (or caves) in northeast Afghanistan, Russia and the Andes mountains in Chile. Some smaller quantities are also mined in Italy, Mongolia, Canada and the US. It's been discovered that lapis lazuli was exported to the Mediterranean world and South Asia along ancient trade routes dating back to the 7th millennium BCE.
With the Bernadette bracelet on your wrist you'd know that you were wearing a piece of history on your wrist.
Lapis lazuli gemstone, brass wire, copper. Adjustable.
