This bracelet will be on the site very soon. It's made of PMC and a couple of strands of hammered sterling chain. The plate image is grass--Texas highways are resplendent with many varieties of grass gracing the 'scape if the highway department doesn't mow them and the livestock doesn't eat them--my favorite colors are the bleached-out-like-blonde-hair and that lovely soft cinnamon that I recall from a certain hill in Bastrop on the way to the house; I'd breathe thanks to the mowers for letting it grow it was so pretty. Originally this bracelet was made from silk cord to hold the plate, but I didn't like messing with cleaning the silk and didn't think anyone else would either. So now it's going to cost more but it sure feels good on the wrist. I have a necklace on our site that goes with this bracelet, and chose leather for it that is as close to the bleached out grass I could find--a camel color. It is also available in that soft cinnamon color, too, which will be posted soon.

Imagine that you're sitting on the sands at the beach. It's dusk and the seagulls and pelicans are flying overhead. If you're lucky, you may see a Magnificent Frigatebird soaring in the distance. The sun is setting in golden hues, sparkling above the blues and greens of the ocean. This is what I think of when I wear this bracelet.
