Description

A stunning bracelet cuff for all tiger lovers! This bracelet cuff will show your love of tigers every time you wear it.

This is a stunning bracelet that is handmade by stitching each bead by hand into this beautiful design. The bracelet is made with Miyuki Delica glass seed beads size 11/0.

The bracelet measures 2" wide and 7.25" long and has a tab closure.

One very common genre of peyote art is beadwork. In addition to being used in peyote art, the popular peyote stitch is used by beadworkers all over the world. Also known as the gourd stitch, this technique is used in off-loom bead weaving. It is a favorite with bead artists because of its versatility. With the peyote stitch, artists can use either an odd number or an even number of beads in every row. The stitch also allows artists to weave beads into tubes, flat strips or flat circles. This versatility allows artists to stitch beads onto a variety of jewelry and clothing items. The peyote stitch is also commonly used to decorate gourd containers, which is why so many artists refer to it as the gourd stitch.

Although the peyote stitch is named after Native American beadwork, it has been used in dozens of cultures around the world. The stitch dates back to ancient times and has been recognized on unearthed artifacts from ancient Egypt. Researchers believe that the peyote stitch was discovered individually in Africa and America. The Africans spread it across Asia and Europe, and the Native Americans of present-day Mexico carried it throughout North and South America. The stitch may not be unique to the peyote religion, but it has garnered a lot of attention for the practice of peyote beading.

Lab Created vs. Natural Gemstones

The main difference between a natural and a lab-created sapphire is its origin. Both are created using identical materials and have the same molecular makeup. Lab-created (synthetic) sapphires have the same physical properties, visual characteristics and hardness level as the natural gemstones. Natural sapphires are created by the earth and mined, making them rare. The lab-created stones are created by man in a carefully controlled environment and are common.

Natural Sapphires
o Sapphires are made of corundum, also known as aluminum oxide. The heat used to make the stone comes from the earth and they are mined from the ground. The natural gemstones are valued for their rarity and the fact that no two are alike, making each one unique. Natural sapphires have natural inclusions (flaws) in them, and exhibit a distinctive color based on the region they are produced from. Many choose a natural sapphire simply because of the mystery and romance associated with owning a "natural" stone.

Lab-Created Sapphires
o Lab-created sapphires are made using corundum, just as the natural gemstone is. However, they are created in a laboratory and grown under carefully controlled conditions, simulating the high pressure and heat of the earth to replicate a natural sapphire. The heat used to create them comes from a machine and produced by either flame fusion or a flux-melt method. Lab-created sapphires do not scratch or chip more easily than the natural stones, and are valued for their AAA pure quality rating.
Visual Difference
o Natural sapphires have inclusions, which are flaws or "specks" as a result of gases and minerals being mixed into the molten mass, and trapped within the stone during crystallization and before cooling. Natural sapphires come in many varieties, such as light blue, deep blue, violet, purple, pink, orange or yellow. A "fancy sapphire" is one that changes color. The lab-created gemstones are produced to emulate the exact color and clarity desired. Since most consumers desire the traditional blue sapphire, there are not as many varieties in color. The lab-created stones are relatively flawless, and have all the ideal characteristics of a top-quality natural gemstone. Only a gemologist can tell the difference between a natural or lab-created sapphire.
Cost Difference
o Although gemstones without flaws generally demand a higher price, flawless lab-created sapphires are substantially less expensive than the natural gemstones because they are so easily made. Natural sapphires are more expensive because they are rare, difficult to mine and include a labor cost. Natural sapphires with no inclusions command the highest price. "Fancy sapphires" are less expensive than the traditional blue, even though they are rarest of all sapphires, because the demand for them is less.
