I just can't seem to get away from my favorite glass shape - the pyramid! Here I created an oval to set off the pyramid, reminiscent of the cartouches put around the names of ancient pharaohs.
To create the focal piece for this bracelet, I weave sheets of fabric,from either silver or rose & yellow 14/20 gold fill wire using a medieval fingerweaving technique. Then I cut this fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind the pyramid shaped glass. The glass both magnifies the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collecting the light, which makes the entire piece glisten.
The dimentions of the focal point of this bracelet is 1 1/4 inches long and 5/8 inches high at the widest point.
How does the bracelet work?
The bracelet clasp is a new design as well. The "wings" are memory wire covered with rubber, so the whole bracelet just wraps around your wrist. It's the ultimate in easy to put on jewelry! The bracelet also does not slip around, so the focal point will always be on top. The rubber covered memory wire is "squishy" enough that wearing this bracelet while working at a desk or computer is not as annoying as most bracelets can be. The best part though is that with this design, one size fits most so you never need to worry about getting a good fit. To see how easy this bracelet is, check out the video below!
