"Last leaf of autumn crunched under their feet. The forest path meandered, never showing them what lay ahead. Just as well they didn't know. They would go through frightening things before the sun suddenly burst out again."
The softest silk ribbon wrap bracelet with a copper focal. The copper is shaped as an oak leaf and slightly curved to follow your wrist. I have shaped and stamped the slide by hand from recycled copper in metal clay form, then fired and polished to a high shine.
The oak is an ancient symbol of wisdom, wealth and endurance. Wearing an oak leaf was traditionally a sign of special status among the Celts (as well as ancient Greeks and Romans).
The ribbon ties easily, just knot it and tuck in the ends. The ribbon goes around the wrist 5-6 times. The hand dyed silk can be hand washed with a bit of soap and even ironed for a smoother look. The wrap here is the 'King Fisher' ribbon. If you want to choose a different colour, have a look at the links below.
