This piece can be worn as a bracelet, necklace, or choker.  If you plan on wearing it as a bracelet select the size which is closest to the circumference of your wrist or larger.  The nylon cord stretches very little but does become more supple with wear.


I made the original prototype for this clip from brass, using fabrication and carving techniques.  A rubber mold was made from that prototype.  The clip is lost wax cast in the USA and hand finished in-house.

The cord starts out as marine grade heading twine, which I dye and wax in house.  I tie the ends together with a blood knot to create a permanent loop.    The piece is very secure, very strong, and very comfortable.  Like most of my pieces, it can be worn in water without fear of damage.  


 A nice fancy way to wear it as a bracelet....
