BONE BRAIDED Leather Bracelet
I have an always expanding collection of bones and skulls.
My workshop table is littered with skulls and bones. They are scattered all over, so sometimes when i pick up a bone i have a hard time remembering what animal its from, and what part of the body the bone is from. thats definitely the case with the bone that i picked up one day and decided to use for the bone braid bracelet. Its a snake bone, but I'm not sure which snake skeleton i pulled it from.
We used to make jewelry out of raw original bones. But we found ourselves using up a lot of our collection. Then we found out that if we wanted to sacrifice a bone we could make a rubber mold out of it, and take the wax and have our bone reproduced in a metal version, like brass or silver.
After getting the bones back from casting we found that the bones looked pretty good in a row. I put a scrap piece of leather through the bone hole and lined them up. I put it around my wrist and realized it could make a cool bracelet. Only thing was there were some sharp pieces that made it uncomfortable. So after filing one down, I sent it back to get a new rubber model and more casting done. Once i had the new casted bones I realized that the leather wasn't going to hold the bone beads. I tried braiding some leather to make a bit of thickness and all of a sudden I had something that was kinda sorta completely rad.
Voila, there you have the Bone Braided Bracelet
Its adjustable with a sliding bone bead, made to fit a variety of wrists. Measures 6.5 inches at it's tightest
