Rutilation

A Rutilated Quartz cabochon takes center stage in this cuff bracelet. I was inspired by the "gold" rutiles in the stone; they are all hap-hazard, and appear to be trying to escape. I surrounded the cabochon with a bezel of Swarovski crystals. Gold-filled chain and tiny beads comprise the remainder of the beaded portion, mimicking the colorways of the cabochon. Metallic thread spurts from the bezel--perhaps the rutiles were able to break free from the stone after all!

The inside of the bracelet is lined in a soft, suede-like material for my wearing comfort.

My comfort? Yes--the bracelet is part of my personal collection, therefore it's not for sale. Unless you want to zero-out my daughter's college debt, of course.
