April Birthstone Bracelet Set - Spring Reawakening
The traditional birthstone of April is the diamond, one of the most valued (and controversial) gemstones on the planet. Whether you believe diamonds are a girl's best friend or not, it's safe to say, in the current economic climate, many of us are looking for a less expensive option to celebrate the month of April. For my April birthstone bracelet set, I've opted to work with Quartz, in several different forms.
Quartz is known as "the Mother of all crystals" and it's easy to see why when you understand just how many of our favourite gemstones are merely different forms of Quartz. Because we're channelling diamonds here, I've opted for mostly translucent Quartzes. Perfectly clear, flawless Rock Crystal Quartz is the rarest of the trio. Crackle Quartz adds depth and texture to the set and Dark teal dyed Quartz diamond-cut beads add a pop of colour.
I chose the green tones to represent spring, which is just starting to emerge here on my little mountainside. The three bracelet set is highlighted by Tibetan silver alloy spacer beads and two hollow filigree beads featuring spring blossoms.
