When I shop for jewelry, I find that my eye is immediately attracted to pieces with the same qualities: unique and simple.
I like modern, clean lines and not very many adornments or flashy additions. I want the piece itself to be chic, stand on its own and make a statement, yet not be too trendy that I’ll look at it a year later and regret the decision.
Therefore, while NOVICA clearly has no shortage of jewelry in their collection, it didn’t take long for me to find myself enamored specifically with their leather bracelets. Wristbands, wraps, cuffs, beads, fair trade… I marveled at the juxtaposition between the earthy leather and the sterling silver or the shining brass and the overall beauty in each one.
But, in the end, I knew I had to stick with my initial love and couldn’t wait to add the Crimson Nest Floral Red Leather Wristband Bracelet to my own collection.
Can this bracelet get any more beautiful?
I’m amazed at the way that the artisan, Hariyono, was able to use his skills in tooled leatherwork to create such a contemporary piece of jewelry with a single piece of leather and a magnetized snap. The result is not only a subtle nod to a nest of leaves in the design, but a combination of art, nature, fashion and lifestyle all in one.
I couldn’t be happier about the way this red cut out cuff bracelet adds a little bit of color to my outfit yet isn’t overpowering in any way. It snaps easily onto my wrist and magnificently works with just about any style of clothing that I’m wearing — and it has yet to not receive multiple compliments each time I’ve worn it!
Fashionable, affordable, versatile, one-of-a-kind and elegant all in one? All of these factors plus the fact that this bracelet helps to support NOVICA’s mission to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market? It is no wonder that I’m head over heels with this piece and have happily made it a part of my life!
