Lindesfarne Cat Bracelet 14KY/Sterling Silver
This is one of my favorite bracelet designs, I've made it 4 or 5 times all in St...erling Silver. This time the cat and birds are in 14K yellow gold, on a Sterling Silver bracelet. Engraved carpet knot inside. Probably my last piece before ArtFest 2012! This design was taken from the Lindesfarne Gospels, one of the first of the Irish Illuminated manuscripts., from around 450AD. This is from the great Initial page of the Gospel of Luke, folio 139. Finished today!
