This Book of Kells Dress Bracelet in sterling silver features give rectangular links each featuring an intertwined cord design. This bracelet in sterling silver, with a safety chain, is finished in our workshop in Orkney.
This collection is based on a beautiful illuminated Gospel book from the late 8th Century. The pattern of intertwining cords is derived from Eastern and Celtic art, and passed into the repertoire of British and Irish artists from the 6th to 9th Century. The interlacing design is found on metalwork and sculpted stone, as well as illuminated Gospel Books.
