Oxidized sterling silver buffed to a matte finish reading J'aime la vie ~ I love life. Its got beautiful hand dyed silk strung through with labradorite beads that dangle on the ends. Just slip the bracelet on and wrap, wrap, wrap, tie a knot and let the labradorite dangle. You can choose your own ribbon color and if you prefer no stones that is no problem. The ribbon is 42 inches long, the silver plate is 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 inch. SUCH a great piece!!!
