A Little Coppery Bow to Lighten your Senses

Bow Bracelet | Vintage Bohemian Luxe Jewellery | artisan handmadeBow Cuff | Vintage Bohemian Jewellery | Artisan Handmade

A stunning 1940’s Copper Bow with vintage Swarovski jewelled centre is perched upon an adjustable brass cuff.

Ribbons and bows are among the oldest decorative adorning materials known. Medieval and Renaissance patrons bought ribbons woven with gold and silver thread and made from silk and other rare fabrics from the Orient. Ribbons were so identified with luxury that, during the sixteenth century, the English Parliament tried to make the wearing of ribbons a right of only the nobility.

The Swallows are the Imperishable Stars : Swallow Song Cuff by Ghost and Lola : A Blackened bird alights on silver cuff

During the Old Kingdom of Egypt, swallows were associated with stars and therefore the souls of the dead. The Book of the Dead specifically instructs the deceased on how to transform into a swallow. In Spell 1216 of the Pyramid Texts, the pharaoh describes how he has "gone to the great island in the midst of the Field of Offerings on which the swallow gods alight; the swallows are the imperishable stars." The imperishable stars were those near the North Star that never seemed to rise or set, and therefore were "constant".

Abundance, Joy, Music, Dance, Cosmetics and Self - Beautification

Vintage Brass Cuff | Statement Jewellery | Bohemian Luxe Artisan Handmade

Vintage bracelet | Bohemian Designer Statement Jewellery | upcycled

Golden Mirror Cuff : A vintage lattice mirrored jewel from the 70's is mounted on vintage filigree ornate frames and welded to an adjustable brass cuff.

Mirrors were cult objects used in the worship of Hathor, Goddess of abundance, joy, music, dance, cosmetics and self-beautification, which brought one into harmony with the divine.

Mirrors have always existed. Before the use of metal, they were the reflections on the waters collected in the earth’s indentations. Early peoples believed that in such reflections the soul element could be perceived.

Our English word “mirror” comes from the Latin mirari: to wonder or marvel at.
