'Cappuccino Swirl' Brazilian Agate Bracelet

I know, I know - it's almost Christmas time, well at least according to the stores.  And I promise you that next week I'll present you my Christmas collection. But today I'd like to talk a little bit about agate.

Agate is a lovely type of crystal with a smooth sheen. It's a part of the quartz family. Agate is a very old mineral, it was first discovered by Greek philosopher Theophrastus sometime between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.

Agate is often a bit opaque and can be found in a stunning array of shades - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, pink, white, grey and more.

Agate is a hard stone - usually within the range of 7-9 on the Mohs scale (the scale ranges from 1 to 10), which makes it good for jewelry.

As with many types of crystals, agate has its own special healing properties to improve the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of its users. It is often used for relaxation and balance, to ground and provide tranquility to its owner.

What I especially like about this bracelet  - it's the color. I called it Cappuccino Swirl, and it's just it - soft, sweet, warm milky cappuccino - what you need for cold winter morning before Christmas!

Thank you all for looking and I wish you warm and cappuccinny (is it even a word?) day!

The bracelet is 8,5'' long with a beautiful star clasp, and the agate beads are 10mm. It is only $52 + shipping and handling! Enjoy!

Ruby Agate Bracelet, 'Regal Jewel'

Tonight my dog walked me outside at 4 AM. That's very peaceful and quiet at that time. Though, I did see some activity: a car drove to a 24 hrs fitness centre (what an ungodly hour for a workout!) and a morning paper was delivered to my neighbours doors.

My head was clear off of all the thoughts and my spirit was free and high - ready to fly. Was something solemn, majestic and imperial at the moment... In a few moment the spell was broken by my dog, but I remembered it.

And there is quintessence of it: Regal Jewel Bracelet made of graduated  faceted ruby Agate. The beads are 10, 8 and 6 mm. The bracelet itself is 7,5" long and embellished by Swarovski and Chinese crystal and some metal beads. You can have it  for  $62 + shipping if you click the 'Buy Now' PayPal button bellow.

Amethist Oval Bracelet


Amethyst IS a royal stone. Even if you did not know that before you would have guessed simply just looking at it. I've never owned amethyst jewelry before I started to create my own a few years back, and now I must confess it is my favourite gemstone and I cannot stop myself from wearing it all the time.

This bracelet is very rare because of it large oval amethyst beads which are not easy to find. The supplier I buy my beads from do not carry it anymore and not sure they will have it again. So this bracelet is one of a kind and even I myself, the creator of it, is not likely to repeat it.

Amethyst is one of the most famous purple gemstones, and has been used to make jewelry since ancient times. England's monarchy possesses some fabulous Cron Jewels which prominently feature royal purple amethyst of astounding size and beauty. Additionally, the Roman Catholic church favours it is a popular choice for clergy; every pope since the 16th century has worn amethyst jewelry of some type.

The bracelet is 8,5'' long. To buy it click the 'Buy Now' button bellow and you will be redirected to secure PayPal web site. The price is only $82.
