The Lover's Bracelet (OOAK)
This listing is for a ONE OF A KIND bracelet.
Three "Rose Stones", containing dried rose petals in various hues set under glass, are resting on a sterling silver platform, decorated with hand stamped patterns, and four repousse details. This striking pendant rests on a hand formed and hand stamped double split band. The bracelet contains my makers mark and a sterling heart for the one you love (even if it is a reminder to yourself). It was then given a patina to bring out the hand stamped details, and to give the piece an antiqued look. It was then given a lavender oil and wax coating to keep the patina in place and satisfy the senses. This bracelet is a very striking, heartfelt talisman of eternal love and beauty.
Roses have long been used as a symbol for love, but it goes much further. Yes, in mythology, roses tended to be associated with the Greek Goddess of love, Aphrphrodite and Venus. In alchemical text and art they are depicted with seven petals as a symbol of inclusion, universal understanding and order. In the tarot the flower of a rose indicates promise, new beginnings, and hope. Red roses specifically for an enduring love.
In these talismans I've created, I want to pull from all of these sentiments. Talismans for a loving, balanced, inclusive, new beginning. Something our Mother's have offered us, be it by birth, by growth and knowledge, or from the nurturing friendships and caregivers in our lives. These are the jewels for the special goddesses in our lives however they take shape<3

DetailsThis bracelet band length measures 6", with a 1" opening.
The rose pendant setting measures just over 3/4" tall, and 1 1/2" across.
As a side note, due to the natural and delicate nature of the rose petal it is not recommended to wear this bracelet underwater. Without thinking I have worn mine swimming and it was set completely air tight and there were no issues, however over time with constant wear stones on all jewelry will shift, and it is always wise to not press ones luck and allow delicate and treasured pieces to receive only minimal time in the elements.
