I really really really love smoky quartz.  I decided to make a bracelet made completely out of sterling silver pendants and other findings from pieces of old broken jewelry.  I'm really proud of the result. Let me know what you think. 










I used a sterling silver "drawstring" barrel clasp in the back which makes it adjustable.

Wow! This is a beautiful bracelet!

Out of curiosity, where did you find the "drawstring" clasp?

I'm glad you like it!  I got the barrel clasp from a bracelet that broke.  I make jewelry all the time and wish I could find some more clasps like that, but I haven't seen any anywhere.
