Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! My friend on FB named this one Solstice Cuff as I am useless at naming pieces lol.
Cuff consists of a central polymer clay face cabochon that I bought here on Etsy from the lovely Tina at Beachcomber https://www.etsy.com/shop/Beadcomber.
Cabochon is surrounded by Miyuki beads and tiny red Swarovski crystals, with Malachite beads, seed beads, Swarovski Ravoli’s and Soutache braid. The colours really compliment each other and I love this design!
Enclosed in the cuff is a brass bracelet to give it strength. This also makes the cuff fully adjustable so it will fit almost any wrist size (even my fat ones!!).
The inside of the cuff is covered in blue ultrasuede which makes it very comfortable to wear.

DID YOU KNOW?
Malachite is a powerful stone but one that needs to be handled with caution. It is toxic and should only be used in its polished form. Malachite is an important protection stone as it amplifies positive energy.
Psychologically, Malachite is a stone of transformation. Life is lived more intensely under the influence of this adventurous stone, which encourages risk taking and change. It mercilessly shows what is blocking your spiritual growth. Malachite draws out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes, breaks unwanted ties and outworn patterns, and teaches how to take responsibility for ones actions, thoughts and feelings. It releases inhibitions and encourages expressing feeling. This stone develops empathy with other people, showing how it would feel to be in their place. It alleviates shyness, and supports friendships.
Mentally, Malachite goes to the core of a problem, enhancing intuition and insight. It can help alleviate mental disturbances, including psychiatric illness (not sure about that! lol).
Medically, Malachite is an extremely versatile healing stone. It is particularly useful for cramps, including menstrual cramps, and facilitates childbirth – it has been called the Midwife stone!!! Also reputed to help with the immune system, arthritis, broken bones (!), toothache and gum problems.
