arthurfred's Shop Announcement

My handcrafted wooden bracelets and pendants are eye-catching pieces of jewelery that fuse the strength and beauty of wood with the loveliness and allure of a variety of minerals, semi-precious gemstones and materials such as lapis lazuli, malachite,Eilat stone, carnelian, silver, brass and gold leaf.

In all of my work, I try to implement an eco-friendly approach, turning my bracelets from found wood and logs.

I primarily work with two types of wood: olivewood and Indian rosewood, also known as Dalbergia sissoo. The fusion of the soft strength of magnificently grained olivewood with the hard crystal strength of a gemstone is extremely beautiful while the deep rich brown of the Indian rosewood combined with gold leaf, gemstones or a thin, delicate strip of silver or brass seems to suggest that gold or silver is flowing magically through the wood.

In both instances, rather than suppressing the naturalness of wood by seeking to hide the knots, inclusions, splits and crack created by nature and time, I highlight them. The effect is dramatic.

If you can't find in my shop the particular size you want, please don't hesitate to contact me and I can produce for you, at a reasonable price, the bracelet you want.
