This Ming china bracelet features shards of china is genuine Ming china that was found in a shipwreck off the coast of Malaysia near Singapore. Pieces of this Ming china were given to me by a friend who had scuba dived the Portuguese shipwreck. My educated guess based on when the Portuguese were in the spice, tea and silk trading, is that this Ming china is probably at least 350-450 years old. Here's an article on its origins.
This Ming china bracelet has only sterling silver components and there is only one of this style bracelet in my inventory with its specific pattern of the piece of china as well as its shape
I set this bracelet using a sterling silver bezel strip for the setting around the china and it is on a sterling silver backing. Making this bracelet involved torch soldering in multiple stages as each joint was soldered. A fair bit of sawing, sanding and polishing was required to bring out the beauty of the setting that forms this bracelet. The chunky silver chain is also sterling silver and it features a lobster clasp. There are extra links to accomodate a variety of sizes of wrists. This bracelet is signed by me and is numbered (38) as it was the thirty eighth item of jewelry that I have created with this rare and hard to come by china.
The actual bracelet measures 7 3/4 inches or 19.5 cm long.
This bracelet will be tastefully gift wrapped in a box and tied with an organza ribbon.
