Description

First let's take a look at a piece of jewelry that is symmetrical. If you cut this charm bracelet down the middle, the halves would be almost identical. I say "almost" because though the placement of the charms is consistent, the types of charms used are not. Still, this bracelet is considered symmetrical as it is nicely balanced and has a predictable rhythm.

That's not to say, however, that the piece is boring! The chain, charms, and findings are made of natural brass (nickel-free brass that has not been antique plated or chemically treated), which gives the bracelet a vintage feel. And the green pressed-glass flowers and cathedral beads really play well with the brass.
