Japanese Medallion Complex Form Bracelet donated to the Racine Art Museum

This bracelet by Harriete Estel Berman is inspired by a Japanese Medallion form. The entire bracelet is constructed from post consumer recycled tin cans. It is 5 3/4" in diameter; an important dramatic statement in art jewelry that can be:
-displayed on your wall
-stand on edge for display
-wear for dramatic style

100% of the revenue from the purchase of this bracelet (minus the Etsy and PayPal fee) will be donated to the Racine Art Museum. It will remain on Etsy for a few more weeks before I send it to their Fundraising Auction.

One side is a subdued ochre and orange color with diagonal lines of pink, yellow and teal.

Around the wrist is a checkered pattern in subdued greens accented with brass rivets.

The other side is orange background with metallic gold vines and leaves from an Uncle Ben's Rice tin can. Additional metallic gold leaves are cut out of recycled tin cans and appliqued to the surface with additional brass rivets. You can see this in one of the close-up images. Around the outside edge of subdued green are additional brass rivets.

The outside of the bracelet is an abstract pattern of trees and leaves in subdued greens. An additional leaf is cut out and added to the side. You can see this in a close- up image. The bracelet is 1" in depth so it stand beautifully by itself.

The inside wrist is subdued greens printed with additional sheaves of grain in orange. This orange matches the orange on one side of the bracelet. This bracelet will fit a medium to medium large hand. It measures 2 3/4" to 3" across. If you would like me to send you a paper template of the wrist to try on, just let me know.

The visual dialog of the patterns on this bracelet is conceptually consist. Japanese Medallion form, rice tin, with leaves, outside with leaves, orange abstract lines. The tin cans are almost perfect without scratches.

Retail price is $911.
