What a month! This month the challenge was truly challenging. The fabulous component is a clasp, a coin clasp made by Niky Sayers. And its an Irish hare coin.
Now I love this as the hare is “my” animal. And I am of Celtic/Irish descent. And it looks like a full moon, and brings to mind the lunar hare that is my icon, and new logo. SO clearly this is destined for me to keep!
I knew I waned to make a bracelet – as that best shows off the clasp as focal. And there I got stuck. Because there e are SO MANY options. OK _ something I can wear daily with my Fitbit. ( I like my Fitbit, but MUST accessorize/disguise it.)
I debated so much… my favorite stones? chunky statement stones? symbolic stones chosen for their attributes to make it more of a talisman? And my favorite stones won!
I know that this is an exceptionally simple, dare I say boring design. But I it means a lot to me and I will wear it all the time!
On a side note, here are some of these gems attributes:
- Garnet: unyielding strength, increasing willpower, vitality.
- Moonstone: the magic of the moon – encourages communication by promoting clear thinking, inspiration and receptivity
- Labradorite: For self-discovery, it is excellent for awakening one’s own awareness of inner spirit, intuition and psychic abilities.
- Smoky quartz: endurance, fostering serenity, calmness and positive thoughts,to protect and ground one physically and spiritually
Thanks to Niky for a lovely piece – and thanks for understanding my simple design choices…
Please visit my team mates and our guests! Enjoy!

this is beautiful. I love the stones and the meanings behind them. Simple but perfect.
I went simple too – it always works best for personal pieces. Your bracelet is beautiful and totally you – enjoy it!
Oh, I love it too! All the subtle colours from the stones, the wonderful shapes and how you combined them. I am not sure whether I agree that this is a simple bracelet 🙂
Your special bracelet looks great with your Fitbit. I know you will wear it a lot. It has such a special connection to you. I love the gems you selected to include for their meaning.
I went simple too. I also wanted something I could wear all the time. I love your bracelet!
Love the meaning to your design, I would wear this all the time!
Simple, elegant, meaningful-not boring! Love all the stones you used to complete your bracelet especially the labradorite, my fave. It all works well with Niky’s clasp.
I had to chuckle about accessorizing your Fitbit, since I do likewise. Simple & meaningful is a win in my book. Wonderful.
I love your bracelet Jenny! I love that it is wearable and that you have used my favourite stones too and your post is a delight to read, thank you!
It’s beautiful Jenny, simple doesn’t matter when it’s the right thing! I love that we both used labradorite, it just seemed to fit with the coin, didn’t it?
Great choice, Jenny, as it means a lot to you!
