This bracelet was made by me at my first brick+mortar. The Helenite gemstone was sourced from a US based lapidary. I painted a moon inside/underneath the Helenite with oxidation paint. The moon isn’t visible all the time and is more of a hidden treasure that only the wearer knows of.
Each granule used in this bracelet was made by me (as opposed to purchased). As I explore my own style in goldsmithing, I find that I love the journey of creating pieces from the most basic components like sheet metal and simple wire.
