This bracelet is made from a silver chain interwoven with silk cord. The blue was dyed with indigo in my vat and the red is dyed with madder root.
The thread of the story winds its way through the links of the chain, following the ins and outs, the twists and turns of the plot. Eventually it arrives back where it started with the experience of having been to the other side.
The ends of the cord have been combed into soft tassels and the handmade hook clasp embellished with a nugget of turquoise for the blue bracelet and a deep red garnet for the red one.
All metal is antiqued sterling silver.
The actual bracelets currently available are shown in the last three photos.
Size: the blue bracelet is 17.5 cm (6 3/4 inches) long, the red one is 18.5 cm (7 1/4 inches). They fit best on a wrist of about 17 cm (6 1/2 inches). If you'd like a different size, please drop me a line.
As with all textiles, storing the bracelet out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep it at its best but if you always keep it on it should wear like a favourite pair of jeans.
