Arts & Crafts Freshwater Pearl Bracelet by Frank Gardener Hale
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
From one of the earliest and most important goldsmiths of the Arts & Crafts Movement, Frank Gardener Hale, this delightful bracelet beautifully represents the movement's philosophy of pushing away from the prevailing method of mechanized jewelry production during the late-18th and early-19th centuries to, instead, place the focus on artisan-crafted works of wearable art. Hand fabricated in brightly burnished 18K gold, decorative openwork links alternate with Baroque freshwater water pearls creating a distinctive, charming, and easy-to-wear with anything collectable. The clasp is marked with "F.G. Hale," and is seamlessly integrated, allowing an uninterrupted design pattern. Measures 3/8 by just under 6 7/8 inches.
