Corn Maiden Bracelet

Wilbert Manning

About The Corn Maiden Bracelet

Bold, handsomely crafted corn maiden bracelet is forged of sterling silver. This substantial cuff gives the illusion of being tufa cast, but it is fabricated of several heavy gauge pieces and textured by fusing silver filings to controlled surface areas.

The silver setting is as time consuming and complex as the inlaid corn maiden it is built to hold. The maiden, herself, is stone to stone with each piece carved for added dimension. She represents prosperity and life itself.

This would be a great gift for a new mother, the ultimate giver of life! Note! This bracelet will fix a 6" wrist that is more rounded than flat.

It is not adjustable, as the mosaic inlay would have to be removed to change the shape or size of the silver bracelet.
