Red clusters of beads form flowers with sparkly charcoal crystal centers. The red star flowers alternate with druzy agate round beads that open occasionally with a naturally occurring crystalline inclusion. The contrast of the rich red and deep gray offer you drama each time you step out wearing this bracelet. The red star flower beads are created by double wrapping nylon thread pulling Czech glass beads together to make a flower beaded bead. A petite Eclipse toggle was handmade by the artist with the technique of repousse completing the star theme. Hope you love red as much as I do.

The toggle is Sterling Silver. Sterling Silver can tarnish. Store the bracelet in a Ziploc type bag between wearing. This will protect the sterling from the atmosphere that causes the surface to oxidize. Occasionally spritz the entire bracelet with Windex, rub around so all surfaces are covered, and rinse thoroughly. Rinse some more to insure that there is no residue from the Windex. Let dry 24 hours in the air. The Windex procedure will remove the oils from you skin that can cause oxidization. Return to the Ziploc type bag. This will keep the sterling bright and shiny. If you prefer a patina look, store where the air gets to the bracelet and occasionally polish with a polishing cloth (included in your packaging) and the lower areas will naturally darken and you determine how shiny the high spots are with how much you rub. All jewelry requires some care to maintain its beauty.
