Smithsonian Exclusive Smithsonian Institution Exclusive

Worn singly, in pairs, or in multiples, these beautiful cloisonné bracelets dazzle and beguile. The floral design of each brass bead is hand-soldered, then hand-filled with rich enamel. Set of 6 includes one each black, blue, burgundy, pink, red, and white bracelet. 10mm.
An art form originating in the Middle East and elevated in China (after its arrival there in the 13th and 14th centuries), the cloisonné technique adorns copper, bronze, or brass objects with copper wire designs. The resulting cells are then filled with enamel, fired in a kiln and polished, creating a harmonious contrast between the gleaming metal and the jewel-hued enamel. Cloisonné jewelry can be found in our Freer Gallery of Art. A gift to the nation from Charles Lang Freer, the Freer Gallery contains the world's most important collections of Asian art.
Stretch bracelet, one size fits most.
