Has this ever happened to you? You are at the local mall, it is lunch time, you are starving so you buy yourself some lunch and sit down in the food court to eat when all of a sudden...




This happened at my local mall. Unfortunately, I wasn't there :(

This flash mob was organized by AlphabetPhotography.com to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Handmade Sterling Silver Sodalite Bracelet - Shantell








Sodalite with wonderful variations of blue, black, white cut into 20mmx30mm beads. I call them chiclets because they remind me of chiclets on steriods. I've accented each bead with 3mm sterling silver beads. Each is handwrapped with Argentium sterling silver wire. This bracelet easily and securely closes with a sterling silver infinity lobster clasp. A substantial bracelet that fits a 7½" wrist. If you need the length adjusted, just let me know. When I do shows, this is my best selling bracelet. Everyone has to pick it up, touch it, try it on. I've had some ladies walk away and then come flying back because they just have to have it! I couldn't get the stones for a while, but on my last trip to my supplier's they had 2 strands. So I scooped them up.

Sodalite Beads: 1¼" long x 3/4"wide

Sterling Silver Beads: 3mm diameter

All Gracie Jewellery is handmade in my smoke and pet free studio and comes with its own storage pouch.


*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver.

Moss Agates vary in colors and patterns, but do not actually contain moss. The name reflects the inclusions which resemble moss. Most commonly known are the green moss agates containing inclusions of chlorite, but other mineral inclusions, such as iron oxides, can create other colorful moss-like patterns of filaments within the translucent to clear chalcedony. Oftentimes, these agates form from volcanic activity.

*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver.
