How it's done.
With a handmade item you are buying something that has been painstakingly crafted with love, care and immense attention to detail. Each piece is unique and superior quality to the mass produced items you will see on the high street. The images here show the steps in making a classic Celtic bracelet. Hopefully you can appreciate why this takes all day. Each knot requires many different stages, resulting in 6 solder joints per tiny knot. That makes over 50 soldering operations for just one 8 inch bracelet.  Scroll through or click for an explanation.​
