Imagination of a Chinaman (bracelet)





This bracelet has a stiff foundation due to it's welded mesh copper and brass rings. I began by adding an antique piece of fabric from China and that inspired an entire story.

The china man is sitting at his table with his eyes closed envisioning the next sentence he will write in his story. He imagines trees that are coiled with green copper and a sky shimming with thousands of stars. A storm sweeps over the valley and a hunters fire gets blown high into the sky. The trees are getting twisted and tangled and green is turning into blue. Balls of hale fall, like big metal balls from the sky...

The chinaman smiles because he is grateful for the power of his imagination.

I LOVE it!!!! Not only is the bracelet beautiful, but the story is inspiring. Perhaps there's a way to incorporate these tidbits in the pieces (maybe via packaging or labels?)? xoxo Erika
