Part of the "Inspired by…" series, the Toreador Song Bracelet is inspired by Escamillo’s famous aria from Bizet’s Carmen. Elated crowds hail his success in the bull ring. He celebrates survival, fame and glory while hinting the true toreador's reward lies in the lovely dark eyes watching him.
I chose red and black beads to evoke the Toreador's red cape and the black color of the bull. At the same time these colors represent the opera's themes of love, passion and death. Charms represent Escamillo, the bull and a heart symbolizes the toreador’s reward of love.
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
