I originally designed this type of pierced (as in sawing, not as in body part) bracelet as a project for the classes I teach, but wanted to keep making them. The Caribbean Nights patterns were inspired by sailing trips last year in that part of the world where mountains suddenly slope into beach and into the sea. The Moroccan Nights patterns are from my long time fascination with medieval Middle Eastern culture. They are inspired by the Western Desert outside Luxor, Egypt, but those shapes always remind me of classic Moroccan architecture and silk route caravans. Although I will repeat the basic patterns in future bracelets, as always, no 2 bracelets are ever the same.
