For week 19 I put together this lovely embellished egyptian coil bracelet for the Four Seasons of Jewelry project. Not on theme again, but I seldom follow the optional themes anyway as my muse has a will of her own. 🙂 The egyptian coil technique is as ancient as it sounds, coming to us from the artifacts of ancient Egypt. The identity of the original artist is lost in time, but I often imagine how flattered they would be to know that they created a timeless technique. This bracelet was embellished with bali silver and tanzanite and peridot swarovski bicone crystals to give it a punch of color. The floral clasp combined with the bright colors sets the mood for spring… my favorite time of year. I think I should have oxidized it before I put the crystals on as I am concerned about getting in close enough to buff the bali spacers. I will post a pic of the oxidized bracelet when I get it done.
