June Birthstone

by: Jennifer Tough

Dwyn and I are working opposite to each other this week. Where Amazon Woman is strong and bold, my June birthstone project is dainty, and understated.

A birthstone is the "gemstoneassociated with the date of one's birth, the wearing of which iscommonly thought to bring good luck or health. Supernatural powers havelong been attributed by astrologers to certain gemstones."

- from Encyclopedia Britannica

June has three traditional birthstones - Moonstone, Pearls, and Alexandrite. I have chosen pearls for this month, mainly because we had them in stock ;-)

The bracelet uses a pretty sterling chain, and I have wire wrapped on a few pearls through the long links. The pearl drops are loosely wired, and the bracelet  has a nice and satisfying movement while wearing it. I love jingly jewelry!
