18 cm/7.1 in (braid + closed clasp)
Diameter: approx. 7 mm/0.3 in
TECHNIQUE & FINDINGS
To make them I used a traditional Japanese braiding technique called Kumihimo (“gathered threads”). It’s the time-consuming technique but results that can be achieved through it are stunning. A piece of wire inside a braid makes the bangle flexible but keeps the shape so you can adjust it to your wrist. The unique pattern involves using a complex sequence of movement and constant concentration but the ending effect is worth it!
The bangle is finished with stainless steel caps, a lobster and has an extension chain.
Surgical stainless steel has a hypoallergic formula and it’s not the same as alpaca or cheap metal! Unlike silver or gold, it does not require maintenance, cleaning and care, so you can enjoy its beauty and gloss without much effort. The surface is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. The components don’t start to smell or tarnish after time.
The bangle is packed in an eco-friendly craft box with jute and black paper inside. Perfect for a gift for the loved one!
