My love for the sea inspired me to make this beautiful bracelet.

I handcrafted this bracelet using oxidized sterling silver and aquamarine gemstones.

I made the frame of the bracelet with 15 gauge (1.5 mm) sterling silver wire which I hammered for more strength and character.

Inside the frame I wire-wrapped beautiful aquamarine stones that vary in color from dark blue to light blue (some have a green or yellow hue to them).

The cuff has a handmade sterling silver chain and clasp at the gap for safety.

  1. Such a dreamy, beautiful bracelet, Sonja! You perfectly captured the misty colors of the sea, and the way silver oxidizes at the beach. Gorgeous design, craftsmanship and photos!

  2. I like the form. I like functional. This style can be very versatile for other like designs.

  3. Admire the crafting that went into this piece. Colors also beautiful. Lovely!

  4. Thank you for your lovely comments. This is one of my favorite works!

  5. LOVE this cuff!!! I love working with metals and love how you hammered this for a beautiful textured look. Adding the beads softened the metal for a warm feeling. Great job! This would be a huge seller, I’d buy it! 👍

  6. Gorgeous!!

  7. I am curious: is this one continuous piece of 15ga wire? Did you solder the ends? Finishing items is always the most challenging for me.

  8. Hi Collen, I am glad you like my bracelet.

    Hi Fran, yes it is made of one continuous piece of 15ga wire and the ends are soldered.

  9. You have created a masterpiece that entailed a great deal of work—intricate, graceful and elegant!
