Using the multi-row needlepoint style, Aaron chose to substitute black onyx in place of turquoise, which is usually used in this style of bracelet. The stones are also noticeably larger than the stones usually used in such needlepoint bracelets, but the source of the inspiration for this bracelet is clear. Like the classic version of such bracelets, he set his stones on a background that is so heavily oxidazed that it appears as a black background. Then he added raindrops between all the stone settings to add shimmer to the design. His underlying cuff is shaped to convexity and this makes it sturdy, not easily bent. You wouldn't want this to bend easily because it would stress the bezels the stones are set in. You want to buy this in the right size, put it on and wear it for the next forty years, or until you pass it on to someone you love. This cuff tapers to the terminals and is decorated with repoussée ellipses and stampwork. Aaron also decorated this with stamped motifs inside the cuff. Impeccably smithed and exactly the quality we've come to expect from Aaron.
