Semi-Precious Jewellery, Stretch Bracelets
Among my collection of semi-precious jewellery I have a selection of stretch bracelets, unusual handmade jewellery designs that have all been created from some beautiful semi-precious gemstones. Each of these pieces are a unique jewellery design and I have created the stretch bracelets so that they will fit any wrist size.
Stretch Bracelets apart of my Semi-precious Jewellery Collection.
Below you will see a small selection of my stretch bracelet designs that can be found in my collection of handmade jewellery bracelets, just one of the many unique collections among my semi-precious jewellery
I decided to add stretch bracelets to my semi-precious jewellery collection for a couple of reasons. One being that not everybody's wrist size is the same so it is nice to have a selection of design that are going to fit most wrist sizes and also the designs of stretch bracelets can be a little bit different from when you are using a clasp. The design of the piece of semi-precious jewellery can be continuous and does not have to be divided the same way as when you use a clasp.
With the stretch bracelet design above you can see that I have created a chunky design with a large rectangular bead of the semi-precious stone Tigers Eye in the centre as a focal point. This has been framed with two large round wavy discs of Tigers Eye and because of the way these semi-precious gemstones have been cut they show the beautiful natural colours of this gemstone perfectly.
The stretch bracelet continues with alternating Carnelian and Tigers Eye beads, just another unique piece of semi-precious jewellery
Again with this stretch bracelet design I have used a large semi-precious gemstone as the focal point for the semi-precious jewellery design and with this unique jewellery design I have used a large oval shaped Jasper frame bead. This bead has a large hole in the centre and into this I have added a nugget of semi-precious Carnelian.
The Jasper that I have used with this stretch bracelet is called wood Jasper and looking at it you can see the reason why as this natural semi-precious stone looks just like wood and these stones have a lovely smooth finish with them.
The stretch bracelet design continues with round wavy disc of semi-precious Tigers Eye and then oval beads of picture Jasper, the handmade jewellery bracelet design finishes with round Jasper beads. I love to work with Jasper in my semi-precious jewellery designs as there are so many colours available in this natural stone.
This is one of the more delicate of my semi-precious jewellery bracelets and this stretch bracelet has been handmade from faceted beads of Aqua Quartz and these have been set between blue crystal beads. In the centre of the bracelet I have set a large star shaped bead that has been faceted so that it will catch the light. The semi-precious Aqua Quartz is a stunning delicate blue colour and I have chosen crystal beads that will compliment this.
Further around in the stretch bracelet design I have placed two rice shaped semi-precious Aqua Quartz beads and the bracelet finishes with more of the crystals.
I know that I use making semi-precious gemstones to create my unique handmade collection of semi-precious jewellery but I do think that crystals sometimes add something special to the natural stones especially the quartz
With this piece of semi-precious jewellery I have used a combination of the lovely coral pink coloured semi-precious Strawberry Quartz and the soft blue of the semi-precious gemstone Turquoise.
In the centre of the stretch bracelet sits a large rectangular bad of Strawberry Quartz and this sits in the centre of a bracelet that has been handmade from barrel shaped semi-precious Turquoise beads. I have spaced these beads with blue crystal beads and this piece of semi-precious jewellery is a unique one of a kind design.
