I only have two of these in stock, and when they are gone I will be surprised if I can get more ivory shagreen.
The surface of this delicious ivory leather is polished down, exposing the sparkly circular nodes. Just gorgeous.
A 5/16" strip of shagreen (polished sting ray leather) fits neatly in a channeled bracelet. It looks great matched up with other bangles for a layered look, or all by itself. It measures a standard 2.63" inside diameter.
After polishing the brass, I cut the shagreen by hand. It is then chemically bonded to the brass securely. Finally, I finish the metal with several coats of Renaissance Wax. This inhibits tarnish on the brass and gives a nice luster.
Each piece is made to order. Due to the handmade nature of this product and the unique patterns on each hide, you can expect slight variations from the item in the photo. Please note that this listing is for ONE bracelet; I photographed two to provide more details about the item.
