This bracelet says “Beauty and quality!” in execution, materials and design.
A curvy version of the traditional “cricket” design, floats above an etched background.
This design was often seen on leather bow-guards, or “ketohs”.
In this piece,the emphasis is on flowing curves, and textural contrast that highlights the marvelous, precisely executed design.
Fan-shapes of parallel lines surround the central oval. These represent feathers. The center oval is polished to a brilliant gleam, as are the curved forms between the fan shapes.
These make a beautiful contrast to the linear texture of the feather fans and the tapered. similar chiseled forms that extend from the center of the oval.
The varied, minutely textured background emphasizes the beautiful interplay of silver textures.
Elegantly detailed, every element of this bracelet contributes to the distinction to this exceptional piece.
This bracelet is a superb example of modern Indian design, where the inspiration is from the past but the refinement and casual elegance are very today.
A real showpiece, it looks great with jeans; fabulous with tailored trousers, knits, suits, and more.
