Red organic and textural coral contrasts with Ethiopian silver metal beads in this chunky bead bracelet.
The beads are rosary wrapped with back iron wire - chosen for its strength and rustic patina. Large African silver metal beads - their surface uneven and distressed, mirror the red coral. Each piece purposefully chosen for its lack of uniformity.
Around 8 inches (20 cm) end to end plus a silver extension chain (with coral swinging from the end) which gives an extra inch (2 1/2 cm). Closes with a black iron wire hook.
Coral has long been used as an amulet in cultures around the world:
'Its colour is that of blood, the vehicle of life. In Europe it was believed to be the drops of blood from the mythical Medusa, falling into the sea as Perseus kissed her. Pieces of coral are hung on doors to protect from evil, lighting and tidal waves' (Amulets, Sheila Paine).
