Water and Lightning Bracelet
“Platero” means “silversmith” in Spanish, perhaps indicating that this third-generation jeweler’s artistic roots may go back even beyond his grandparents.
Very versatile, he creates many different styles and objects.
Recently, he brought in this marvelously simple, dramatic, silver bracelet. The zig-zag shape looks modern, even contemporary, but the inspiration is traditional: lightning, the precursor of rain, and therefore a good luck omen.
In face, the glistening line at the peak of the sand cast silver resembles running water, the result of a storm.
Alternating texture and polish add to the allure of this handsome piece, which is very flattering on the arm.
Good looking, comfortable, and striking, this is a bracelet for lovers of tradition and admirers of today’s styles, both.
