The two sides of the carvings on the "Sylvie" Bangle

"Sylvie" Bronze Bangle
“Sylvie” Bangle: Rhea Silvia was the mother of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. Sylvie means “of the wooded forest.” This bangle evokes the fragrant pines of Rome. Have you been there? It’s magical. This bracelet is cast bronze molded from one that I carved using bronze metalclay. The original took many hours and I would have to charge mucho, mucho for it. By making a mold of the original and casting it, I can make it available at a great price and it looks just as cool as the First One! I will be introducing more versions, each one different, so you might want to order more than one. Besides, they look really great when worn in multiples. This one is called the “Sylvie” Bangle because the original is worn by someone near and dear to my heart. The inner diameter is 65 mm or about 2.5 inches. It is medium fit.* The outer diameter is about 80 mm or 3.25 inches. The thickness is 4 mm or 1/8th inch. *A Word About The Fit of A Bangle Bracelet: A small bangle will have an inner diameter of about 60 mm or 2.5 inches. A large bangle will have an inner diameter of about 70 mm or 2.75 inches. When you put on a bangle bracelet, your hand squeezes together to fit into the bracelet. When your hand resumes its usual position, the bangle shouldn’t fall off, even if you are a gorgeous Italian and speak with your hands! We don’t want that piece of jewelry flying off your arm and causing damage. Capisce, amici miei? That’s my attempt at Italian……. Ok, so, what if the bangles are too small? Write to me and tell me your size and we’ll see what we can do. Or, buy the bangle you love and use a smaller one (we love to mix and match!) to keep the larger one on your arm! Hah! I do this all the time!!! Besides, the tingle and jingle of these bracelets as they touch one another is very melodious! These bangles have some copper in them and a few folks may see a slight discoloration on the wrist after wearing. It is harmless and can easily be washed off with soap and water.
