This Budding Vine Bracelet(TM) represents approximately 2 weeks of 8-hour-a-day labor. It's part of my new line of fine silver pieces, many of which are bejeweled organic forms.

The continuous bangle bracelet is a hollowform, which makes it surprisingly lightweight and comfortable to wear. Many layers of Fine silver clay slip were painted onto a real vine which was doubled around itself, then burned out in the firing process, leaving a .999 silver content piece (its purity higher than sterling which is.925 pure). It took about 3 firings to get all the details to look exactly the way that I wanted and to add the bezels in which I set 7 genuine, gem quality Chrysoprase cabs. These Cabochons are the prized intense apple green (more like "traffic light" green) that is the most desireable in this stone. I put a very light patina on this one; just enough to show the grooves and natural curves and twists of the vine as it circles around, while still showing the lightly brushed silver underneath.

It fits a 6-8" wrist, and is made slightly wider in one direction than the other so that you can twist it on without having to force it. Once on, the comfortable design leaves your arm some wiggle-room while staying securely on. (It won't come off your hand unless you intentionally take it off by gently twisting the same way as you put it on).

Stay tuned for more budding vine bracelets. Each one will be one-of-a-kind.

My wrist measures 6 1\/8", and my hand from pinky base knuckle to thumb base knuckle measures 8". (This is a good way to measure to make sure the bracelet fits easily over your hand). The 4th photo shows how the bracelet fits when worn.
