Torcesque - Rose Quartz and Copper brace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women

What you will need

  • I was inspired by the torcs made by the Iceni tribe with there beautiful twisted wire detail and wanted to create a bracelet with that same look of strength combined with simple
  • delicate detail. I have made this bracelet with 6 loop double Viking knit chain
  • which I have finished with handmade wire caps
  • the ends of the chain are accented with Rhodonite beads. The large 16mm Rose Quartz bead is encased in a wire spiral. A thick frame wire runs through the centre of the bracelet
  • which I have finished with a handmade hook clasp and link that I have hammered to add a contrast in textures. The inside diameter is 7" I have oxidised this piece to highlight the detail.

Saw the pic, awesome work, and I said to myself, this has to be Abby's work, then I looked to the right for the picture and name, and low and behold I was right! Adding a few beads to the classic viking knit makes an amazing looking bracelet!
