leather band color

This leather bracelet is adorned with a sliding bead inspired by the benthic foraminifera Elphidium macellum. Foraminifera are amoeboid protists. The name of this species is derived from the latin for "hole bearer" because the test is adorned with elaborate holes that the protist can stream ectoplasm out of to catch prey and drag it inside to be digested. Elphidium macellum forms a particularly intricate and beautiful test.

The Elphidium slider is created by 3D printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid copper or solid sterling silver. The slider is only lightly polished after casting to give it a rougher, more detailed appearance.

Please be aware that both copper and silver tarnish over time. If you don't like the vintage look of darkened metals, please note that it could be difficult to polish the metal slider due to its attachment to the leather band.

To determine your size, measure your wrist tightly with a measuring tape. Add 1 cm to your wrist circumference for a snug fit or 2-3 cm for a looser fit. The sizes* are as follows:

small = 18 cm

medium = 20 cm

large = 22 cm

*If you need a different size, please contact me. The leather bands are not pre-cut and I can easily customize the length for you.

All items are gift-wrapped in original, recycleable Ontogenie packaging. The bracelet is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
