Mina bracelet by bodaszilvia Mina bracelet by bodaszilvia
I'm in a victorian mood :)
It started while re-watching one of my fav film series, 'Road to Avolnlea', continued with Sherlock Holmes (that one with Jeremy Brett), and Dracula by Coppola.
This bracelet is inspired my the lovely Mina Harker. In my mind Mina has this colors... blue eyes, and dark copper colored hair.

It took about 30-35 hours to make it.

I always wanted to try to make crocheted wire jewelry, but i cannot crochet. My mother promised me to teach it, but she died 15 years ago in a car accident. Than i tried to learn it from books, but it's very hard.. after long moths of thinking i've realized that i can knit! So the base of this one is knitted copper wire, than i've added the silver plated decoration and the glass bead. I've oxidized the whole piece to add a goth-is, mystical feeling.

It measures 3.5 cm in width, and 16 cm in length.. it can be longer if i add a little extra chain to it.

hope you'll like it!

So beautiful! Dracula is my favorite book (and Mina my fav character). This is perfect!

i'm honored you like that bracelet that much, but copying other's works is not the best idea.. it'll not help you to find your own style.. i'm sure you have great ideas too, you should let them come out :) be brave! :nod:

This is lovely. The colours are perfectly tasteful, and the detail on all that wiring looks like it must've taken a lot of effort. It also has a bit of a 'steampunk' feel to it, which I just love. :) Awesome jewellry, I'll have to pop through your gallery now.
