Prehnite Druzy Gold Wrapped Cuff Bracelet
This cuff bracelet displays a chunk of prehnite in a druzy form from Massachusetts. I'm in love with the color of prehnite and to find it as a druzy makes it even more special. I did some basic lapidary work on this piece, smoothing the edges and back of the stone just enough for a comfortable fit while keeping its organic and natural shape. Unlike some prehnite, this piece has a dark saturation of color and the texture of the crystals shimmer and dazzle in the light. This is a very sturdy bracelet. The stone is secured not only by prongs but also a gold filled wire with diamond cut faceting to create a texture with a lot of sparkle. The rest of the bracelet was oxidized to contrast with the gold. This natural stone measures 23mm x 1 1/2". Although, the stone is a bit chunkier than other ones in my cuff bracelets, the bracelet is quite comfortable to wear and not as heavy as you would think. The cuff can be shaped to the wrist for a snug fit.
