Manu Scriptum bracelet

This bracelet is made with a photo-etched sterling silver plate 75mm long x 8mm wide 1.5mm thick on a standard 22cm long and 5mm wide sterling silver chain. It is a solid sterling silver plate, etched, oxydised and shaped by hand. The text used on this bracelet is from my personal family collection of old documents and as I am French it is written in French! The soft matte finish gives a good contrast for the text to pop out and give the look of an actual hand written letter. 

Customisation option: to use your own text please select the "Custom text" variant and contact me with a high resolution image of your black & white text. Please note custom orders take 4 to 5 weeks to complete.

The story behind this collection

This collection has been developed in response to my Honours research at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney where I looked into the aesthetic and use of writing in craft practice, particularly in a European context.

Communication is a very important part of our modern world and writing (in its electronic form) is one of the prominent means of keeping in touch with friends and relatives. Handwriting shows personal characteristics and requires a little more effort and / or thought before it is sent. It is not an instant way of communicating but rather more personal. Using handwritten letters to be photo-etched onto the metal surface became my area of focus to reflect the close connection between the writer and the addressee. By wearing an extract of a personal hand written letter the addressee shows the importance of the message and beyond that the connection between two particular people. The piece becomes a constant reminder of that connection and bond.

I am proud to make jewellery with recycled sterling silver manufactured right here in Sydney. 

Sent with a trackable parcel. Please contact me if you require insurance for the parcel as it adds extra cost not included in the postage price listed.
