I made this forest textured bracelet around a unakite gemstone surrounded with real tree bark and fake moss. The colours are gorgeous! I created even more interest with the handmade raku element (read about raku below) with a cute paw print. I was thinking of the bear cubs walking in the forest on a rainy day. The patina on this piece is so nice, with colours ranging from olive green to coppery tones. I used a wide range of beads from Japanese tiles to ceramic Greek beads with patina to Czech glass leaves.
Raku is an old Japanese pottery technique where the clay piece is removed suddenly from the hot kiln causing it to cool rapidly. The firing is done in a chamber where combustible materials like straw are lit causing the glazes to turn into surprising and delightful finishes. The finishes are literally "painted" with fire. How fascinating!
This is a very original piece that is guaranteed to grab attention and generate compliments.
|Size / Weight
This cuff is constructed on a flexible base. The finished width is 2 1/4" (58mm) and the length is 8 1/8" (206mm). When closed, the edges overlap about 1/2" (12mm). It will fit slightly loose on an average size wrist. The closure is a ceramic branch imitation bead and a braided cotton loop. I can slightly adjust it for you if needed, just let me know.

I do not know the exact chemical composition of my supplies and I do not take responsibility for any allergies or bad reactions on skin. I will however answer honestly and to the best of my knowledge any questions or concerns you might have, so please ask before purchasing. If I write "non-toxic" or "lead-free" is because the supplier mentioned it in their description. I do not take responsibility for their information.

|Care & Maintenance
Do not let perfume or cosmetics come in direct contact with the beads and components. While I choose my material carefully and I try to provide the best quality, if not properly taken care of, all beads will change or lose colour or shine in time if exposed to chemicals.
Handle the fragile components with care especially the clasp area. Be gentle! Because I use lots of fragile components made of clay or porcelain, I advise to keep the jewellery in their own boxes out of harm's way. I do consider repairs, but subject to certain conditions.
