Fun fact about sunflowers, each sunflower’s head is really a collection of 1,000 to 2,000 tiny flowers arranged in an intricate pattern that creates a reproductive opportunity for the plant. The petals we see around the outside are called ray florets, and they cannot reproduce. But the disc florets in the middle, where the seeds develop, have both male and female sex organs, and each produce a seed. They can self-pollinate or take pollen blown by the wind or transported by insects.
This fun bracelet will make you feel grounded and calm when wearing it as it is a connection to the deep, rich earth and to the open, fresh sky. Perfect for any horticulturist, florist and nature lover. The sunflower heads are on both sides of the wrist and the petals of the flowers wrap around to the top of the cuff.
I have applied turquoise and dark patinas to emphasize the details of the design and to give it a vintage look. This bracelet is coated with a metal sealer to help preserve the colors.
To achieve the design on this bracelet, I have used an acid etching technique. Years of experimenting with and fine tuning the process has led to the intricate details you see here.
This gorgeous bracelet was fashioned with thick, 16 gauge (1.30 mm) nickel silver. It measures 1” W x 6” L and has a 1.25” opening in the back to slip over your wrist. The cuff is adjustable and usually accommodates wrist sizes 5 3/4” to 7 3/4”, depending how loose or tight you like to wear your jewelry. To ensure this will fit your wrist please measure your wrist. If you have questions about the sizing please don’t hesitate to ask me.
SIZING: The cuff may be slowly adjusted, with even pressure on both sides of the opening. Please remember to leave yourself just the right amount of space to be able take the bracelet off without it being too loose to fall off your wrist on its own. Adjusting the size of metal jewelry frequently is not recommended. To put the bracelet on and to take it off, it may be helpful to do so sideways, just above your wrist bone, in the meaty part of your forearm. For further details on the proper sizing of your cuff, please watch the video on the Sizing & Care page.
CARE: Please treat your GaleForce Design Jewelry as you would all special jewelry. Avoid exposure to water, lotions, sprays, cleaners, perfumes, abrasives, etc.
