Who doesn't need a subtle reminder to take a time out from life's busy pace, take a breather, take a moment to themselves? This bracelet is this reminder. It's perfect for anyone who has stress in his or her life - in other words, just about anyone.
I sawed, filed, and textured brass sheet to get the base of my centerpiece. Then I sawed, filed, and stamped copper sheet with the inspiration of the piece, "RELAX." I rived the two pieces together with my handmade rivets.
The rest of the bracelet was constructed in half persian 4 in 1 chain maille. I chose this weave because it is very slinky and sleek - it lends itself perfect to the inspiration word. It's the epitome of relaxation. The chain was made of my own hand sawed rings in copper and brass.
To finish off the piece, I made a clasp of textured copper. The brass and copper centerpiece measures about 1 7/8" long by 5/8" wide. The bracelet measures about 8 1/4" long. For this bracelet, you should allow about 1/2" space in sizing; it would probably fit about a 7 3/4" wrist best.
