Little fuzzy bats aren't just cute around Halloween. They are cute ALL the time. I really wanted this little one to come across as fluffy and sweet. The etching in his chest and his fat round belly makes him seem a bit squishy and cuddly, doesn't it?
This little guy was cut out by hand in multiple layers of recycled sterling silver that I roll in my studio. He was then given all his details with tiny tools and shaped to appear soft. I pressed real leaves into his wings to try and create their unique veined wing membranes. Nature is beautiful! This specific leaf pattern so reminded me of the photo of the baby brown bat's wings that I was using for reference! He has tiny toes, fuzzy ears, two little eyes to try and see in the night, and the cutest pig nose I have ever seen! A one of a kind bracelet, truly.
I paired this boy with two rose cut iolite stones in a deep sparkling purple. They seem to change their shades depending on where you are standing to admire them! They range from almost jet black to the prettiest bright purple all within a flick of your wrist. I specifically chose those two iolites because they were purchased from the cutters themselves. I will only purchase ethically sourced stones that can be traced back to their origins. The rose cut pattern on these two catch the light in so many directions and are the perfect match in color to live with their bat friend forever. They are held in safely with a beautiful pattern bezel.
This bracelet is made to slightly open to fit several sized wrists, but as with all bracelets it does not want to be opened often, so I can talk with you about how to properly put on a bracelet such as this so it stays strong for many years to come. It is very simple, thankfully! I added a photo of it on my wrist so that you can kind of get an idea of how it sits and how large it looks while being worn. My wrist is 6.25 inches around and the inside diameter of the bracelet itself is 6.25 inches with a added 1 inch opening.
This one of a kind completed piece will come to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making it perfect for gift giving. It will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days.
