Preview of the new Bohème Collection...

A sneak peek of my new bohème collection of antiqued brass & silver pieces featuring victorian & georgian antique elements and lots of draped & woven chain! The entire bohème collection will be available online in May but this preview piece, the Isoude Bracelet, is available online now!

The Isoude Bracelet features hand-wrought antiqued brass and fine oxidized sterling silver chain have been accented with a single polished ruby and woven together to create a lacy cuff nearly 2" wide. The bracelet closes with an antique georgian *pinchbeck mourning clasp c. 1800, with a top glass compartment to hold a photo or memento.

(*Pinchbeck is a brass alloy that was popular as a substitute for gold from the late-1700s to the mid-1800s, but fell out of favor after 9K gold was legalized)
