The beaded Kandinsky Bracelet is a power piece filled with many healing stones and hand-crafted, fair trade beads sourced from places around the world. This piece was inspired from a trip to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in NYC and a friend who is an inspiration and full of bright happiness and color, my Bryan.
I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with beads of the finest variety. The beads are carefully chosen for their antiquity and craftsmanship of their makers. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these handcrafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.
This bracelet is carefully crafted with large, ornamental, incongruent-shaped pieces juxtaposed against the small, geometric color-filled ones. The combination creates a beautiful balance as it moves naturally on your wrist. It beams with incredibly vibrant gems! Some stones: shiny and polished, and others classic, weathered and rutty from time. All of these beauties, bathed in rich jeweled tones colored naturally from the earth.
Every design is accompanied by a list. The list encompasses history, as well as scientific details, and the meta-physical healing qualities inherent to the metals, gems & beads on your piece. All accessory and jewelry items are shipped securely inside BINC bodyBAUBLES signature, keepsake storage satchel. The petite bag is made of inimitable, repurposed materials. The packaging doubles as thoughtful and unique gift-wrapping!
Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from an ethnological appreciation of different cultures. My design esthetic is influenced by primitive tribal jewelry and artifacts' as tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, and the colors and hues within all of them. I relish the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor and am fortified by history of all genres. I find foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world endlessly stimulating. I'm encouraged everyday by family, music, architecture, nature, and the ecosystems within.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing seven-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.

Some finely beaded, heavier bracelets are recommend to be restrung every 12-24 months (depending on how often it's worn). Send it back for a free restringing every 24 months with proof of purchase, or for a discounted fee without. Each BINC piece is made with care, each gem chosen, on every design. Even with such attention there is always a possiblility that a sharp piece of a precious gemstone or cast metal bead could cut the wire. BINC takes liability of breakage and repair within one year of purcahse. I do not recommend bathing or swimming in these pieces as it could compromise the structure.
