Bracelet Design

I started 2015 with one of my favorite things- Jewelry. I had a sentimental necklace pendant with a labradorite stone that I never wore (it just wasn’t my style), but I always kept it with the intent to use the stone for something else. My jewelry collection has a lot of rings and necklaces, but barely any bracelets. So, I decided to design one and have it made using the labradorite stone.

Once again I commissioned friend, and wonderful jeweler, Carrie Bilbo for the piece. Carrie is always able to interpret my cryptic sketches and inspiration into exactly what I want. This is what I sent her (along with some notes):

After a few more emails back and forth, this is what I got back to help decide the exact placement of the stone:
