Opera Bracelets are a unique jewelry product; pieces of wearable art designed especially to tell the stories of the classic operas. Hand selected beads and charms symbolize the characters, arias and events taken directly from the opera's libretto. Elements are arranged in linear order from prologue to finale. Every bracelet comes with a chart telling the story and identifying the symbolism of the elements.
Opera Bracelets are a perfect reminder of one's favorite opera, a memento of an evening at the opera house or a gift for opera lovers in anticipation of attending a beloved performance. Opera Bracelets are the perfect jewelry gift for opera singers, fans or classical music afficionados whether for birthdays, holidays or other special occasions.
All Opera Bracelets are individually handmade in Rochester NY, USA. Follow the menu at the left to shop by Opera or Composer.
The story of the creation of Opera Bracelets:
It was with great excitement that I looked forward to attending my first major opera production at a world renowned opera house, Wagner's Die Walkure. The cost for this memorable event was very high, especially counting the astounding price of the opera tickets. Of course, the performance itself was worth all the effort and expense. Watching a live opera performed by a major company was heart soaring and soul stirring, the sort of experience that makes you want to spend hundreds of dollars in the gift shop to help you always “Remember the Moment”.
Alas, I was actually quite disappointed by what was offered at the opera house’s gift shop. The store had many lovely things for sale, but nothing that I felt would be just right for me to remember this particular moment. Being an artist, I began to mentally design the first Opera Bracelet (as my special memento of Die Walkure). The seed of the idea for Opera Bracelets was born!
I invite you to choose the Opera Bracelets from our collection that best represent your “Moments”. Be sure to think of Opera Bracelets for those special moments yet to come!
