Middle Eastern Cannetille Bracelet
A very special Middle Eastern bracelet with incredibly detailed and varied silverwork, including a unique use of Cannetille. It featured 6 sugarloaf lapis stones, likely from Afganistan. The pin thing is easy and secure. It looks to have had links added to the chain at some point, perhaps in gold. The more time you spend with this beautiful piece the deeper your application of the details will be. It is truly a work of patient master craftsmanship.
