The Habanera Bracelet

The Habanera Bracelet is inspired by the seductive aria from Bizet’s Carmen. This piece makes a meaningful gift for opera fans.

The beautiful Carmen relates the unpredictable nature of love, symbolized by a rebellious bird as she weaves a love spell to capture the oblivious Don Jose.

Eclectic beads evoke the wandering Romani spirit; rather than being comprised of all crystal or Czech beads as many of my bracelets are, I thought about a mixture of different beads one might collect through a traveler's journey. Tiny hearts and birds further reflect the words of the song and a bit of gypsy "jingle" is incorporated with tiny bell chimes. The charms symbolize the rebellious bird, love and the flower with which Carmen will bewitch Jose.

All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.

    Can't wait to wear this. Aqua and red beads draw the eye, topped off by the large red hibiscus, bird, bells and heart charms and smaller contrast beading. I plan on wearing this on Xmas day.

    Love the colors of this bracelet - and especially love the enamel flower! Terrific workmanship, as always - and I did appreciate the sale, too!
