This wrap-around bracelet consists of a single length of antiqued-copper coloured memory wire, threaded with chips of rich purple, semiprecious amethyst, punctuated by round 'crackle glass' beads in copper.

Amethyst is a variety of quartz, a naturally occurring, semiprecious stone. Amethyst is usually translucent and typically purple, ranging in colour from pale mauve to deep violet. It has been used as a gemstone in jewellery by many cultures, from the ancient Egyptians and Greeks to Anglo-Saxons and medieval Europeans.
Crackle glass has a cracked or 'shattered' appearance, and is often quite sparkly. It is smooth to the touch, but looks as though it is on the verge of shattering.
Memory wire is very strong and will hold its shape even under great stress – hence the name: the wire 'remembers' its shape. To wear this bracelet, simply wrap it around your wrist. It will stay there until you unwrap it – no clasp necessary.

This amethyst bracelet has an inside diameter of approximately 45mm, and will comfortably fit a 16cm wrist. It is designed to wrap three times, giving the appearance of three strands of beads around the wrist. This memory wire bracelet can be made to sit further up on the wrist, like a cuff bracelet, or it can be worn looser and low on the wrist. The slimmer your wrist, the looser the fit will be.
The amethyst chip beads may look spiky and uncomfortable to wear, but when the bracelet is worn the chips naturally rotate themselves around the wire to sit as flat as possible against the wearer's wrist. After a few minutes of wearing, the chips will have aligned themselves to sit as comfortably as possible. Nevertheless, this bracelet is not designed to fit tightly and so may not be comfortable on a larger wrist.

Also shown in the photographs are the matching amethyst chip and copper-coloured glass earrings, which are also available here in my Felt shop.
