Inspired by Puccini's Fanciulla del West, the Minnie's Gamble bracelet represents Act 2 of the opera.
White glass pearls, heart shaped beads and clear crystals evoke the love duet in the snowstorm. Pale golden beads and crystals symbolize the golden West. Touches of ruby red with a ruby teardrop represnt the blood droplets that give away Dick's hiding place when Sheriff Rance comes calling. The playing card bead evokes the card game in which Minnie wins Johnson's life. A Sheriff's star is Rance, a cowboy boot the bandit Ramirez/Johnson. A heart with a hole represent Minnie. Everyone around her loves her but the only one who can fill the hole in her heart is Dick Johnson.
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
