Treasury Item! September Bracelet: Orange Jade, Textured Silver Rounds, and Antiqued Copper Globe

I had a lot of fun designing this bracelet, and even though it's not September anymore, my "September" bracelet is perfect for October and beyond (especially for folks with a sense of playfulness--read the original blog post to find out why)!

Check out the beautiful treasury in which it was featured!

September Bracelet: Orange Jade, Textured Silver Rounds, and Antiqued Copper Globe

Another new bracelet....

This bracelet  reminds me of the month of September with its harvest color palette, but I'm sure it would look lovely from the lazy days of summer to the frost-bitten days of winter.

Six textured silver  rounds, chunky and organic, compliment the rich antiqued copper tone globe and light pumpkin-orange carved jade beads.  Two heavily plated and faceted silver beads frame the antiqued copper globe with floral detail.  Near the toggle bar, a tiny white shell bead adds interest to the design.

Perhaps the most interesting detail about this bracelet is the carved jade beads.  I've consulted and some say they look like little pigs, and it so happens that in some cultures, pigs are lucky!  Both the Chinese and Irish consider the pig to be a symbol of luck, and the Chinese believe they bring luck and success to businesses (see source).  So, let this bracelet bring a little luck into your life!

The bracelet is 7 1/2" long and fits a wrist up to 6 1/2".
