Braided Flexible West Indian Bangle with Steel Pan Handmade in 925 Sterling Silver10001021
Material - genuine sterling silver .925
Bangle is made from 4 individual wires that are twisted into an intricate and flexible design.
About this bangle:
The braid is made from 4 individual wires that are manually braided together to form the intricate pattern you see here. Because of the way the wires are braided, the material is very flexible and is at the least risk of breaking. It is also much easier to put on and take off than the traditional bangles and doesn't put too much stress on the bangle which could lead some to break over time. The Trinidad Steel Pan or Steel Drum ends are casted separately and soldered onto the braided wire with .925 sterling silver solder. Each item is handmade and therefore every piece is unique.
About West Indian Bangles:
West Indian Bangles are a tradition of the Caribbean Islands. They were originally created through the unison of East Indian and African designs. These West Indian Bangles are typically worn in pairs but I price and sell them individually so you can choose how many you want to buy. These bangles are unisex such that both men and women wear thick bangles and thin bangles although men tend to prefer the thicker ones. They are often given to children to remind them of their heritage.
