Handmade Bead-Woven Greek Leather Bracelet - Single-Wrap

Details

Just a simple thing, this single-wrap bead-woven Greek leather bracelet. But there's a lot you don't see in the photos: the leather is from Greece, and made to last a very long time; because it's a light shade of tan in a natural finish, I've rubbed it down thoroughly with microcrystalline wax (the stuff used by museum curators to preserve and restore items in their finest, rarest collections); the beads are all Miyuki brand, 5mm Tila and size 8 seed; the twine is American-made Tuff-Cord brand polyester and I've double-laced it from opposite directions (instead of using a popular short-cut technique) so if one strand gets nicked the other - separately laced - can still keep things sturdily in line; everything is tightly worked and therefore a bit buckled or raised in some rows, so when it relaxes with wear there'll still be no gaps between bead rows.

You can wear this with confidence, it'll never look cheap or thrown together; it'll ride easily on any wrist up to 7" (it's 7-1/2" around) and still have slack to swivel around on your wrist. If you'd like it an inch longer, convo me and I can convert the generous 1-1/2" knot-ended tails into a second loop with shorter tails that are not knotted. If you'd like this in a double-wrap or triple-wrap, contact me to see if I still have enough of these particular supplies. All else being equal, the cost would go up by $10 for each additional wrap after the basic one-wrap you see here (a couple bucks more than for some other designs, because the tile beads are spendier).

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I see these everywhere, the younger set loves them; it would be a much-appreciated, hip & cool gift for any age, guy or gal - from 'tweens to twenty-somethings, and even beyond if he or she is into any kind of new-age interests (yoga, Rasta, travel, the arts, rock&roll, spiritualism).

Materials Used

Greek Leather, Miyuki Glass Beads, Vintage Button.

More Info

This comes gift-wrapped in a brown kraft box bearing my brand label, with cotton box filler and designer tissue imprinted with pen-and-ink dragonfly images, and black raffia-style glossy ribbon. The ribbon will be loosely tied, so that you may inspect your purchase before presenting as a gift.

One-of-a-kind; this piece was handmade by me in my home studio, here in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness area, in the east-facing foothills of the Mendocino mountains in northern California.

I take deep pride in my work; each piece is infused with its own personality by the time I've finished it, even if it bears some similarity to another I've made earlier. Because these creations have life for me, I will gladly repair anything untoward that may happen to it in the normal course of wearing. Just email me at mineralandmetal@rtr.net, and let me know of any problems which I'd be most eager to fix. I want you to enjoy your wearable art I've made, and to gift it with pride.

All required sales taxes are paid by me, they are included in the purchase price; the price you see, plus applicable shipping, is all that you'll pay.at checkout

.And if you're going to be in either Tehama or Shasta county, convo me and we can arrange to meet with hand-delivery and, if it’s not a special trip for me, I’ll reduce your price by the amount of shipping (which is automatically computed by the website).
