Remember the bracelet I considered my best work in the year of 2011?
The moment I finished creating this bracelet/armpiece was the moment I started to see myself as a chainmaille artist.
Many people (even the people I don’t know . . . the ones who ask me about the piece whenever I wear it in “public places”) told me that I can definitely sell the piece . . . some store managers even told me that it will do well in certain stores . . .
But . . .
This piece, along with several other armpieces in the ‘Rigmarole Collection’, need to be custom-fitted.
In order to make sure that the bracelet to look the way it’s intended to look on the wearer’s hand, more than one fitting sessions are necessary
For that reason, unless I can find a way to reconstruct this bracelet in such a way that no custom fitting is necessary, I can never make the piece available for sale in my online shop &/or brick-and-mortar stores
It took me a while, but I’m finally able to achieve that goal . . .
The bracelet sits a little differently from the original one, but they look very similar and I like the reconstructed version as much.
Here are several before & after pics of the piece:
