Today I wanted to show off the new Inspira series bracelet for the city of Venice. The first one of these beautiful pieces was sold to a dear friend, but I loved it so much I had to make another one for the show!
This delicate bracelet is hand woven, one bead at a time, using blue and midnight blue swarovski crystals and Japanese glass delicas. It’s finished with sterling silver filigree cones, a lobster claw clasp and a short length of chain with a single cubic zirconia hanging off the end. In the sunlight the sparkle factor is spectacular!
Venice is the most beautiful city I’ve ever shot. The architecture, the canals, the way you could get lost wandering down quiet, empty little streets for hours… beautiful small bridges and hidden gems abound in this wonderful city, made all the more poignant by the fact that Venice appears to be sinking. How heartbreaking, to think that we might lose this breathtaking jewel of a city.
This is a close up of the weave.
