Butter jade and antiqued copper toggle bracelet


Product Code: 28847f

Stock Level: 1

Entirely hand crafted antiqued copper bracelet featuring pale soft green beads of butter jade, spiral wrapped in copper and finishing with a hand crafted copper toggle clasp.  The chunky toggle clasp features a deep spiral pattern to mirror the spiralled wire around the beads.

Butter jade isn't actually a jade and is sometimes called butter stone.  It is formed from fossilised algae, hence its buttery yellow green colour and occasional inclusions.  Some examples of the stone will show distinct layers or bands.  It tends to be called jade due to its delicate translucence and colour, reminiscent of quality jade and is one of the oldest stones on the planet, formed hundreds of millions of years ago.  Most of the stone comes from the south end of the continent of Africa.

The bracelet has been antiqued to enhance the textures and bring out the warm tones of aged copper. The toggle loop has been shaped with a slight curve to allow the shaped bar to sit neatly in place.

Toggle clasps are easy to fasten one-handed and I craft and measure them very carefully for a reliable closure and safety in wear. They won't come undone by themselves, but that also makes them a little more fiddly to fasten - so you'll need a little ease in the fit to allow the bar to pass all the way through the hole, point first, to fall back into place.

Bracelet fit:

The bracelet has a fit of 149mm (5.85") and is 19mm (¾") at its widest, at the toggle clasp. Each jade bead is 10mm (0.4") in diameter. 

As this bracelet is on the smaller end of an average fit, I have already prepared an additional link that can easily be added if you would prefer it slightly larger.  The addition of this extra link would give rise to a fit of 168mm (6.6").   Please make a note that you would like this doing in the comment box during checkout.

Please see the Bracelet Introduction or How to Order pages for more information on bracelet fit and measuring your wrist.

Please note that 'bracelet fit' is an inner circumference fit, as worn, not the linear length of the bracelet.
