DescriptionEntry in Contest #21 "No Metal".
European 4-in-1 bracelet, made with leather links. Dyed mother-of-pearl rings at the end. Magnetic clasp.
Three different types of round leather thonging made up the links: black (1mm), light brown (1mm), bronze (2mm). Yes, the bronze-coloured links are actually leather, not metal; the leather is just dyed metallic bronze. The brown and bronze were tied around a mandrel (the handle of my craft knife) to make them as uniform as I could. The knots were then glued or varnished, and the ends cut; thus those were "pre-closed" links. The black links were tied in the maille-making and not uniform in size. I'd originally intended to trim those as well, but I rather liked the "shaggy" effect, so I left them un-trimmed.
