Looking for a one of a kind red bracelet to wear with your favorite red outfit, this is it! I have used red (dyed) Coral nuggets and hand crafted Tibetan beads to make this unique bracelet. The larger Tibetan beads, were a unique find, and are made of a natural seed capped at both ends with brass and red enamel (could be red coral), and with two smaller red Coral beads capped in brass. These Tibetan beads are all hand crafted using traditional techniques handed down from generation to generation. The Tibetan artisans are living in exile in Nepal and make their living making these beautiful beads. Since they are handcrafted, no two beads alike. The tibetan beads are alternated with chunky red Coral nuggets and connected with small round gold-plated Pyrite beads. At the round brass toggle is a Coral nugget with a gold-plated, lead-free Pewter 'Ohm' charm and a happy, smiling Buddha beads made of red Resin. The smiling face of the happy Buddha is on both sides of the large bead.
Coral beads have played a significant part in jewelry throughout history. People of many cultures thought that red coral provided protection from fire and violence. Coral beads used for jewelry are likely dyed to create such vibrant colors.
Length: 8 inches.
Guide to sizing Bracelets: Using a measuring tape, measure snugly (not too tight) around the wrist just below the wrist bone. For adults add 1/2 to 3/4 inch to above measurement to determine the bracelet length. This is the length given above.
Beading Wire: 0.19"/49 strand professional quality beading wire with 14k gold-filled crimps, and crimp covers. 14K Gold-Filled (14K GF) beads are made by bonding a layer of 14K gold with high pressure and heat to base metal and then shaped as desired. Industry standard requires that the quantity of gold be at least 1/20th of the total weight and the Karat measurement must be marked.
Bead size: 16 x 19 mm Tibetan Seed beads; 10 x 13 mm Coral capped Tibetan beads; about 9 - 10 x 16 mm coral nuggets; 17 x 20 mm Buddha bead.
Care: Clean with soft fabric, or non-abrasive polishing cloth. Avoid direct contact with perfumes, hairspray, and deodorants. Jewelry should be worn after application of cosmetics. Store wrapped in soft fabric or sealed in plastic bag.
