This Friday is the big night here in New Jersey for St. Hubert’s… the annual Canine Cotillion. Artigiano Jewel Box is proud to support, donating my new Garden of Eden bracelet for the evening’s Silent Auction.
Hand embossed & hammered copper panels linked with handmade soldiered sterling links & catch, this bracelet is the first I’ve made in this design. I make some earrings with the beetle impression, and a while back an esty customer suggested the little panels would make a nice bracelet. I’ve been thinking about it ever since… and this event provided the motivation to make it happen. But I broke out a few other forest residents for this version: we’ve got bugs, fish, a crested bird. Parts are cut for another one, coming soon in my shop, but I’ll always think of the good work done by the folks at St. Hubert’s when one of these comes together.
All good wishes to the hard working people who keep a place like St. Hubert’s going… I sure hope the evening is a smash. And I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that this little bracelet goes home with a special someone, big of heart.
