The bracelet was more of an experiment than anything else, – I was not sure how recognizable this angle would be. I keep stressing that these little pieces of handmade art may look fragile, but they are anything but. Someone had just made a joke that if I’d made it long enough, you could tow your car with it, which is not all that far from the truth. The bracelet is durable, I’d even say that it’s indestructible by hand (if you have a hammer, well, that’s a different story!). It looks different in various types of lighting, but is meant to look best against skin, – it’s meant to be worn, not framed.
