The Product: Handmade, pearl bracelet with gold-plated silver clasp
An elegant, handmade, pearl bracelet with gold-plated silver clasp. The design incorporates strands of freshwater pearls and forms part of the ‘Be Strong’ collection by Athens-based jewellery studio Bijoux Bizarres. Designs from this Greek heritage-inspired range symbolise strength and courage. They represent the need to nurture and provide love and support for the underprivileged and unlucky in society.
Bijoux Bizarres design and hand-make elegant ‘mythical’ jewellery for real people’. They draw inspiration from Greek mythology, history and traditions by re-imagining heritage patterns as modern forms. Each modular motif in the collection is representative of an entire period or cultural movement within the history of the Mediterranean region. The quirkily named collections derive from mythical Greek personas, stories or ornaments associated with them. Also states of mind and emotions inspired by them. Extraordinary heroines from Greek mythology whose attributes are often associated with the Mediterranean soul. Love, strength, greatness, pride and sometimes contradiction, vanity and drama!
The hand-crafted pieces in this collection are created in limited numbers from an individual model that has been hand-hammered, using the ancient technique of repousée-on-pitch, to make it ‘perfectly imperfect.’ Hence, each subsequent casting is subtly unique.
This collection of jewellery takes you effortlessly from daytime to evening. Classical heritage and elegant design create enduring appeal, that will transcend fashions and trends. By day, we’d team this bracelet with a smart, fitted sheath dress in a dark colourway, to set off the iridescence of the pearls and the glamorous gold-plating. Velvet would be a brilliant evening wear option. Try Wolf & Badger for some elegant evening dresses. View other designs in the Bijoux Bizarres collection here.
This bracelet is handmade in gold-plated silver embellished with freshwater pearls. It measures approximately 16cm in length. Sweat, perfume, cosmetics & soap can occasionally affect platings. Wash with toothpaste & dry with soft fabric when needed.
