Mina’s Victorian Gothic Bracelet (Black Art Noveau Bracelet)

Colour can completely change the connotation of a piece. This piece is my Art Noveau Bracelet, using all black instead of all purple.

As with a lot of my work, the inspiration is romantic, but this time I was looking to create a Victorian Gothic piece of jewellery. In the original, ornate chandelier findings, pearls, and Czech cut beads create a soft, feminine look.  In this alternative, the look is still feminine, but a Vampiric edge.

The aristocratic, Gothic feel to this bracelet brought to mind Dracula’s heroine, Mina Harker. I’d love to see Winona Ryder wearing this in Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula, which is a film I always watch when it’s TV because I enjoy the visual elements, but also because it’s campy, especially Keanu Reeve’s British accent.
