OK, here's the new project! I have always been fascinated by runes, in fact I used to write in elvish script quite often (phonetically).
These 2 bracelets are for friends, the runes spell out their names phonetically.
This one spells out PEACE, and I chose blue because it is such a peaceful color.
This one spells out SERENITY. The beads on this one are amber.
I chose to use natural material (although the abalone shell is dyed green, but at least its a color in nature) because I thought it fit well with runes. In case you didn't know, runes were used by ancient peoples around the year 1000, mostly in the Scandinavian area. Think Vikings.
I have some more ideas involving runes, but as I said in a previous post, I need a different kind of clay so they won't break. I actually painted these because white clay was what I had to start with. I though they would look like bone, but they just looked unfinished, so out came the paint. Then I sealed them with a matte finish.
I am going to offer the peace & serenity bracelets in my Etsy shop and note that special orders are welcome for names or particular words or even particular symbols.
