Spotlight On: Tight Weave Bracelet

March 25, 2010

As previously stated, depending on the weave, hairwork can stretch to the size of the wearer. This particular bracelet is a wonderful example of that, as the diameter of the piece would hardly accomodate a child’s hand.

Turquoise beads and late 19th century etching on top of a ribbon motif provide the flourishes to the this example.

Look back on the previous hairwork bracelets this week and see the contrast in styles and also the evolution of their forms in a relatively short period.

What assumptions can you make from looking at them all together?
