This bracelet is my first collaboration with leatherworker Nicholas Hollows, aka. Hollows Leather. Nicholas reached out to me in an effort to find a domestically made magnetic clasp to use on his leather bracelets. I had admired his work before, and agreed on the condition that no glue was to be used in the assembly of the finished bracelets. After creating numerous prototypes in a variety of materials we settled on the current form. The magnets are fully encased in metal, eliminating the possibility of them shattering as they come together. The leather cords are held in place by bolts, allowing resizing and cord replacement. The master was modeled to spec in CAD by the talented Nick Thompson of Berlian Arts then 3D printed in wax, hand detailed by yours truly, cast in metal, and molded. The main components are lost wax cast in Rhode Island. The bolts are silver plated stainless steel. The leather is imported from England. The magnets are extremely strong, but on rare occasion they may become separated. If you are putting on or taking off a heavy jacket or sweater it is good practice to check and confirm that the bracelet is still in place.
Because this design incorporates leather it is not recommended for wear in the water.
