Ancient Broken Links

Sorting through an old jewellery box I came across this broken bracelet that appears to use the same link as demonstrated by Boo in her beautiful "loop in loop" pieces, but here it has been used as a connector.

Broken Bracelet

I vaguely thought I'd seen it somewhere before when I was reading Boo's blog, and as it's at least 3000 years old it's hardly surprising. That's the link that's 3000 years old, not Boo's blog, or indeed this bracelet. It's a little over 30 years old and was the first piece of jewellery my ex bought me when we were teenage sweethearts.

I must see if I can fix it, although it appears to be missing a link...either that or my wrists aren't as dainty as they once were!

Or maybe it should remain broken as a symbol of our relationship.

  1. It's lovey, I think you are have it mended and wear it in memory of the good times rather than the bad.
