new wide bar bracelet shipped for the holidays

its getting busy here with holiday decorating, kids’ winter fair at the Waldorf School here tomorrow and holiday gift orders shipping depsite not getting as much time at the bench as I would like.

i wanted to make enough time for these pictures though, because every time i forge a new bar bracelet, i am so glad i still make them the old fashioned way, one at a time from flat bar stock with hammer and fire. i even roll out and hammer the links into shape, and of course every volute-style clasp starts as straight round stock, too.

this is why every forged bar bracelet i make is unique, and invested with more of my personal energy, care and love that might be apparent at first glance.

so here are pictures of the bar bracelet i just shipped a week ago, along with the had sewn leather pouch that i ship my custom jewelry in, a great detail for unique holiday gifts.
