This hand lace set started life as a bracelet. I had just finished the Play earrings and had spoken to a really good friend of mine – telling her (and frankly showing off a little) about my new designs. When she asked out the blue (for me) – Do you have any bracelets?
I had none!
But as soon as the call was over it made a lot of sense that some of us may not like to wear earrings a lot. We may gravitate more towards bracelets. So this design was born almost right away.
I don’t think I even had to sketch it…
A little later on after finishing the original bracelet, I constructed my now signature clasp, so I replaced the clasp I’d originally done for the new one. It looks stunning – if I may say so myself.
This overall hand lace set design is complex – rich – abundant.
It took a lot out of me because the shaping had to frame the best parts of the hand, AND it had to remain functional. For me jewellery has to be comfortable. There’s no point wearing something beautiful, but you’ve got to “not bend your finger, or wrist”…
But I love the challenge of making something beautiful and functional.It was a pleasure to put together.
It’s meant to be fun and like nothing else you’ll come across – truly unique.
It demands eyeballs! So make sure you don’t mind compliments and questions about it ;o)
It’s also very versatile.
You can wear just the ring. Or the ring and bracelet on separate hands (or same hand). And you can attach the ring to the bracelet to create the hand lace set.
You could start out with the bracelet alone for the day time – then add on the rest to make a stunning compliment to any outfit for a night out. The design decisions are yours.
Another part I love about it, is that you can use it to make an outfit smart, or to make a smart outfit less serious.
Meld it with other pinks, reds strong yellows or black. Your choice.
This piece is playful but means you know your style and you’re not afraid to put it out there.
This ring has Pink Corals as the base stones. So as playful the design is – the stones’ super-powers are said to bring you feminine energy and stimulate your intuition (which logically goes hand in hand with feminine powers – no?).
Coral comes from the sea, so it’s believed it can be emotionally healing – because of the calming qualities of the water.
Wether you choose to believe this or not, go with what appeals to you visually. I find when it comes to jewellery – it has the power to pull you in emotionally. My explanation to myself is because it comes from nature, and we are of nature – there’s this connection ;o)
Of course we know the stone by itself isn’t going to solve things. But it’s nice to know the potential super-power on your side and if it matches what you need in your life right now – then it’s an added bonus.
The base metal I used for this ring is Copper. You’d have heard copper’s charm is that it tarnishes easier than other metals.
How quickly it does that will depend on a few factors. Please see the Care Tips I have for how to maintain it at its best. It will come to you with a shining cloth that you can use to spruce it up whenever you fancy. You could also use a bit of lemon water or gentle soap and water to shine is up when you decide.
The thumb ring is finger lace style – so it’s fully adjustable to your finger. You can wear it on the thumb or any other finger you decide. It’s 7cm long and about 2cm wide.
The bracelet is 18cm in circumference. If you need it wider, let me know at the time of buying so I can add on some links for you to help it fit.
And finally the connector piece is about 6cm long (the distance between the bottom of the ring and the bracelet).
* NOTE: I know you can’t try something on over the internet (that tech’s not ready yet ;o), but you could measure the distances on your hand to get an idea of how it will fit. Or use a string cut to the sizes above to see if it will fit you.
Because the ring is adjustable – you know it will fit. The other pieces I can extend slightly for you without compromising the design.
Please note that if you choose a Totem from the TLA shop (like the one on this page) you automatically get access to the TLA Course (value $19.99).
I decided to do things this way to remove the need to make a choice on 2 things (a totem and a course).
But more importantly I really really wanted you to have the gift of learning the TLA method.
If this is not your first Totem order, pls don’t feel you’re losing out. You keep your original access no matter what :o)
