*HAND PAINTED ROSES on PORCELAIN BEADED BRACELET*
** Only the bracelet in the first 2 photos is what you will be buying... I have included one other photo showing other complimentary stack beaded bracelets (listed separately) - they look so nice together**
Gorgeous one of a kind bracelet composed of an early 1900's italian mosaic mounted onto a brass filigree center piece. The beautiful mosaic is so incredibly detailed. It has roses on a turquoise background (19mm diameter). The work on this mosaic piece is lovely and in excellent condition! Bracelet measures about 7" long. The beads are beautiful semi precious turquoise colored stones (6mm). You will receive so many compliments with this beauty - or present it to a loved one as a special gift.
This is a stretchy bracelet, so it just rolls onto your wrist, and rolls off when you take it off. This is an elastic, stretch bracelet of the highest quality, professional grade, reinforced elastic.
Fits wrist size 6-7
Let me know if you would like special gift wrapping!!
A brief history of micro mosaic jewelry:
Wearing micro mosaic jewelry became popular during the Grand Tour period (17th - 19th Century). Members of rich European families would travel around Europe, taking in the sights and cultures of different countries. Italy was a very popular tourist spot as it had a long and prestigious history in arts and culture - a favorite subject in aristocratic circles. It was also a famous glass producer, and Italian craftsmen quickly turned their glass making skills to making stunning miniature micro mosaic pictures for their rich visitors. Flowers were a very popular subject.
Each piece of tessera on the micro mosaic was hand cut by the artist and set in place with tweezers. No two micro mosaic pieces are the same. You are buying a little piece of history that is truly a one of a kind!

THANK YOU for reading..
If I did not touch on a subject you have questions on, please don't hesitate to write and ask.=)
I strive to make each and every customer excited about their purchase. If something is not to your satisfaction, PLEASE contact me.
I offer (and Recommend) insurance in case something breaks in the mail, or simply does not show up. BUT on the rare occasion something does break and you did not purchase insurance, I will do my best to work with you to get it fixed....If for some reason the item does not reach your door step, I will offer you a CREDIT in my store for the same amount you spent.
FOR CUSTOM ORDERS: I ask that my customers pre-pay for their custom order.
I ALWAYS get pre-approval (by sending pictures), before I send the piece through the mail. Therefore, custom orders are not available for refunds. HOWEVER, if something is wrong with the item (damaged), I will of course be happy to fix it OR if you decide you want it altered, I will be happy to do that as well. Your happiness is what I strive for.
Care of your jewelry-
I use strong stretch cord, but the best way to put those types of bracelets on is to roll them on and roll them off.
Gold plated items and gold vermeil should not be worn in the shower, swimming pool or the ocean . It can fade the gold finish more quickly.*
Pave items should not be worn in the water, shower or beach as it can loosen them
In the meantime, it is ALWAYS a good idea to keep each of your pieces in a seperate SEALED bag. The less amount of air that gets to your jewelry while you're not wearing it, the longer it will take the 'elements' to get to your jewelry and 'age' it.
I want my customers to be able to wear their jewelry for as long as possible, so if you have any questions or needs, don't hesitate to contact me =)
Items are shipped in a padded envelope with your jewelry in a drawstring pouch or box.
Please leave feedback on Etsy so I can know how happy you are, and that you're satisfied with your purchase.
