Details

Sterling silver. Length 7 1/2 in., with lobster claw clasp. Two ancient armbands are the inspiration for a contemporary suite of silver jewelry, including this easily wearable link bracelet. Very little is known about the seminomadic Bronze Age tribes that lived in the region of the Carpathian Mountains, in what is today called Hungary. But modern excavations of the barrows, or burial mounds, of their warrior-leaders have unearthed many highly decorated bronze weapons and ornaments dated to between 1500 and 900 B.C. The ornaments include torques, spiral necklaces, garment pins, and armbands. Most of the artifacts found in the tombs consist of geometric shapes, such as two heavy bronze armillas, or armbands, now in the collection of The Cleveland Museum of Art. The armillas' three-dimensional spirals are big enough to encircle a man's upper arm, and the ends of the armbands terminate in smaller spirals. These massive ornaments would have been handwrought in a forge using intense heat. The alternating large and small spirals of our link bracelet echo one of the original armbands. Produced in cooperation with The Cleveland Museum of Art.
