Great Granulation Cuff
This bracelet showcased the artisan's mastery of the ancient technique of granulation. To create each of the tiny balls on this bracelet the craftsman would have heated a bit of silver until it melted into a perfect sphere, and then placed each ball, one by one, and fused it to the body of the cuff, all along carefully not melting or jarring the previous ball. A feat of patience!
