A beautiful silver cuff with two tanzanites set in 22k bezels. This cuff is made by hand in Fran's Indiana studio. This one is sold but Fran can make one similar for you Tanzanite is only found in foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, it's the only place on earth. Soooo that makes it pretty rare.
It's thought to support spiritual healing; help with spiritual insight and psychic abilities.
As well tanzanite has a Mohs hardness 6 to 7.5, compared to sapphires at 9 or a diamond at 10. So it's important to care not to throw your jewelry around. ;)
*care for your handmade STUDIO FRAN beauties:
Silver (even argentium) is prone to tarnish naturally when exposed to air, moisture, pollution, perfume... the list goes on. The best way to care for your precious jewels and handmade STUDIO FRAN jewelry is to store it when you are not wearing it. You don't need a fancy jewelry box (but maybe you should consider one to show off all your fabulous stuff to yourself), a plastic bag or anti-tarnish bag will work.
If you need to clean your jewelry Fran recommends a soft cloth or brush with some baking soda and lemon juice. If you don't have that paste toothpaste works just as well.
