Description

Sara Jewelry Design. Turritella is also known as turtle jasper, and it is a favorite of mine because it is one of the few orbicular agatized jaspers. You will see multiple circles in each bead and the colors vary from a light, creamy white through deep brown, all the way to an espresso black. The reason for these odd appearing inclusions is that they are fragments of fossilized snails! The stone in its rough state can be quite lumpy given the mixed materials, so the beads have been stabilized with internal resin. They then are coated and burnished to a high shine. Therefore, do not (not, not, NOT) subject these stones to harsh chemicals that might strip the protective surface.

For this latest addition to my bracelet line, I wanted to showcase the turritella in a way that would easily flow around a small space, so I went with a graduated design. The center of the design is a bold, 20mm puffed coin bead. To either side are 16mm beads, followed by two 12 mm beads and ending with two 10mm beads. In between the stone beads at the center of the design are 14kt gold-filled 3mm round beads. The smaller turritella beads are offset with knotting of the cordage. For cordage, I used double strands of size FFF USA-made silk and pre-stretched it before stringing and knotting. This makes the bracelet extremely strong, yet leaves it with a most fluid drape.

Either end of the design is finished with yet another 3mm gold-filled round and then secured through a double cup gold-filled knot cover. I include a tiny dot of cement on each end knot. Two oval gold-filled jump rings terminate the strand and the bracelet is closed with a gold-filled spring-ring clasp. Overall length is roughly 7 3/4 inches.

I will ship this your way the next business day via USPS insured first class mail with a tracking ID number.

I have a fairish supply of these lovely beads and findings, so, YES, it is quite possible to make this design to order should you like a different length or closure. You can even go with all hand-knotting, or with all 3mm GF rounds between the stone beads. The design and the beauty of the stones are suitable for all genders and any occasion.
