Really love this piece. It is made with silver plated slider beads (subject to redden a bit with time which I think adds character) and the stone Chrysocolla. Often I confuse Turquoise and Chrysocolla but Chrysocolla usually has deeper green/blue color. Chrysocolla is a teacher's stone, allowing one to impart their wisdom, knowledge, or skills to another (grasshopper!). The bracelet is 7.5 inches, fitting a typical wrist size. It closes with a clasp known as a button clasp, making it fairly easier to put on the bracelet on one's self. If you would like a shorter (or larger) one or with a different clasp, this can be done.
