Handmade Black Oval Agate and Cats Eye Bracelet

This gorgeous bracelet is made from super shiny silky smooth Agate oval gemstones, alternated with shimmery black cats eye, perfectly contrasted with silver plated stardust beads to give a hint of sparkle.

The black cat’s eye has a lovely effect which appears to show a silvery sliver in the stone as you move. The total length is approximately 22cm, although it can be shortened by 2 or 3 cm if required.
