The Wind Bracelet

An asymmetric bracelet of etched bronze, goat hide, brass, button, coconut heishi and 1825 coin of Batavia with mixed magnesite, pearl and turquoise and recycled parts, for instance, the hook came from the rings of an old wool reticule, possibly originally from India.  The image came from a turn of the century pamphlet for Bell Telephone, an image of The Wind blowing the clouds away.  The charm is a special treasure that focuses on a beautiful raku fired bead made by Bernard Jones, as simple and sublime as a bird's egg.  It was hard to part with this bead -- I had to be sure the piece was worth it!
