Like my bold laser cut cuff, this more delicate iteration is rooted in rich tradition yet modern in design. This listing is for 3 bracelets, discounted at $25 each (originally $28 each). See my other listing for 1 bracelet.

The faux leather has subtle texture that gives it a realistic leather-look and a metallic sheen that is both soft and glamorous. You get the look of metal with the comfort of leather! The intricate geometric design is precision-cut by laser, creating a stunning latticework effect.

I reproduced this design by computer, inspired by geometric designs ubiquitous in Islamic art and architecture around the world, particularly the living artisanal tradition of zillij tilework in Morocco. Starting from one center point, the design grows mathematically into circles, squares, and complex stars that interconnect and extend to infinite, representing the unity and interconnectedness of all existence. While these designs are rooted in age-old tradition, the message speaks of universality and transcendence, and the bold, graphic lines are both modern and timeless.

One metal snap makes the bracelet very easy to put on. It measures 3/4" wide and 7" in circumference when snapped.

Choose 2 colors among the options displayed in the last image (this bracelet is double-sided) and indicate your choices in the notes of your order. (Update: White is now a color option!)

SHIPPING: The lead time for shipping this item varies from 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the colors you choose and whether they are immediately in stock. Message me to confirm the lead time.


Geometry, metallic cuffs, and laser-cut leather are major trends right now, and this piece combines all three with a rich and worldly artistic heritage, creating the perfect balance of tradition and modernity for the sophisticated, eclectic woman.
