Entirely hand crafted blue toned Sodalite and antiqued copper toggle bracelet.   The semi-precious denim blue marbled Sodalite beads of this bracelet have been spiral wrapped in copper for this bracelet and it closes with a hand crafted copper toggle clasp.

The toggle loop of the clasp features my own exclusive digitially drawn geometric pattern and a wire wrapped toggle bar.  

The beads are called Sodalite from the rich sodium content of the stone which gives rise to its characteristic blue tones.  The blue is marbled with creamy white (and an occasional and subtle matrix of greens and browns) and the resulting beads remind me of the blue and white shades of Delft pottery.  It is geologically similar to Lapis Lazuli, but the blue is less intense and it doesn't have the gold sparkle of the pyrites caught in lapis, hence it is sometimes called poor man's lapis.  I rather like it's more gentle tones and don't feel it's visually inferior at all.

The bracelet fastens with my own hand made toggle clasp and they 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 152mm (6") and is 20mm (0.8") at its widest, at the toggle clasp. Each Sodalite 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 172mm (6.8").   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.
