Jade and Agate Stacked Bracelet Trio, "Honey Sage"

I absolutely love this color combination! Sage green Korean Jade, milk-white Agate and honey Jade.

This listing is for three stretch bracelets. They are about 6,5-7" long but will fit most wrists. I use only high quality pre-stretched cord and secure the bracelets with square knots. Each stone is handpicked for best quality and color combination.

It's your choice how to wear them - as a trio or each bracelet alone. Mix and match, combine and create! Lovely charms: Love, Heart, Hope. For only $57 plus $7 for shipping this set of three bracelet can be yours.

I hope you like them as much as I loved making them!


Materials used:
  1. Honey Jade beads, 10mm
  2. Faceted White Agate beads, 10mm
  3. Korean New Jade Nuggets 10-12mm
  4. Filigree metal beads
  5. Floral print metal bead
  6. Silver-tone 'Heart' charm, nickel-free
  7. Silver-tone 'Love' charm, nickel-free
  8. Double charm 'Hope', silver-tone and gold-tone, nickel-free
  9. Pre-stretched elastic cord


White Agate is an excellent all-purpose type of stone, but most specifically it can be helpful in assisting the body in expelling toxins and promote regenerative healing. Spiritually it does much the same thing, helping to clear the mind and soul of negativity and to enhance one's ability to not only think with clarity, but also to learn and develop further abilities faster and with greater ease.

White is the color that symbolizes purity and therefore is associated with spiritual inspiration and overcoming negative emotions. It is claimed to attract good fortune by eliminating bad luck. It’s color is said to represent and aid in increased concentration, clarity and promote good will. Helps one to overcome flaws, fears and loneliness. Its calming effect during times of stress gives a sense of strength and courage.

Jade is a symbol of purity and serenity. Much prized in the East, it signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility. It is protective stone, which keeps the wearer from harm and brings harmony. Yellow Jade is energetic and stimulating but with a mellowness to it, bringing joy and happiness. Honey Jade is believed to be a powerful emotional balancing stone.

New Jade is a form of semi-translucent Serpentine that is commonly a light to medium green color in soft hues and mottled designs. New Jade Serpentine is said to have the same spiritual values as green Jade. Because it produces a tranquil mood, it helps us when we're depressed, especially when we feel stuck in a situation. Like green Jade, New Jade Serpentine can help you get grounded, so you can live with the situation and feel more tranquil while you're doing it.


The set will come to you in pretty organza bag with caring for your stones instructions.

Payments are made through secure PayPal web site.
