Sterling silver broken circle chain bracelet
When you wear this I hope that you remember that nature doesn’t strive for perfection, instead it seeks to create beauty from imperfection.
I was thinking about the jewellery where the “catch” is always hidden in the back – functional but not pretty. I decided to make the “catch” the focal point of my design – giving her a starring role. I noticed that the circle was a shape I was seeing everywhere in nature – So the circle became the basis for this piece. However, in nature I have always observed that nothing is ever symmetrical. I used my upcycled copper to echo that less than perfect rule of nature. When you heat recycled copper it will break into pieces unless you handle it with kid gloves. I decided to embrace the break and create beauty from it – much like Mother Nature Herself.
The bracelet clasp is approximately 25 mm in diameter and the bracelet is made from heavy sterling silver chain. The bracelet is the heaviest of the three pieces in this set.
Please be aware that as each piece is handmade and some design variances will occur. Be sure to give a gentle squeeze periodically to the clasp – to keep it nice and tight.
