Handmade ceramic bead with linen cordage
Handmade on Pender Island, BC
Not one bracelet is the same, as the subtle imperfections in the bead and the cord separate one another
Notes from Of The Earth Pottery:
As we started creating these bracelets, there was this primordial sense of being we felt as we worked. For thousands of years, humans have been making clay jewelry, so as we rolled out the beads, twisted the linen cord, and knotted on each bead, it was almost as if we were entering an ancient state of being.
Each bracelet features a handmade ceramic bead with foraged crushed quartz imbedded into the same clay we use for our pottery. We try to emulate what it may have been like to create in the ancient world, and we inject it into these pieces. The cordage is 100% linen, one of the oldest fibres known to ever be used by mankind, bringing you back to a time when the art of creation was a slow and ritualistic process. The cordage is twisted by us to feature a loop on one end to tie. Not one bracelet is the same, as the subtle imperfections in the bead and the cord separate one another, and show the human connection.
