The cord is fine and a mid grey shade with a soft sheen that highlights the intricate weave. The bracelet ties at the back and each tie is finished with a tiny sterling silver bead. Bees symbolise family, love, loyalty, fertility and industriousness and this dainty bracelet would make a lovely gift, full of meaning, for that special someone, or for yourself! As with all my bracelets, I handweave them in my studio in the far north west of Scotland. The bracelet comes on a white printed card with a silver border.
