October Passage

October Passage

$60.00

October is a month of dramatic changes. We move from soft sweet summer to the approach of bitter winter. We might not leave our homes but the passage of time through October provides us with the change of scenery we desperately need. The components on this bangle have seen changes, too. The bangle itself is vintage and never worn having been stored in a warehouse since the last century; it closes smoothly with a built-in clasp that clicks securely shut. It measures 3 inches in diameter which is average in size. A reproduction of a vintage brass stamping has been given mawjanga's deep blue Bohemian Midnight patina then sealed, waxed, and riveted to the bangle. An amazingly detailed reproduction brass swallow stamping has been carefully shaped to match the curves of the bracelet, then given mawjanga's colorful Island Gypsy patina. The swallow carries on its back two vintage glass fire opals--the larger measures about 1/2 inches long and is set is a vintage crown setting, the smaller is 3/8 of an inch long and is set in a lace-edged setting. Glass fire opals of this quality contain their fire brilliantly but the slightest ray of light will ignite their glow.  This bangle is a piece that can accompany you no matter where the journey takes you.
