This bracelet, which can also be worn as a necklace, is inspired by the traditional marine hardware of the same name.  It is an original mechanism, and the first piece of production jewelry I ever designed.  

I hand-braid the cord on a standing loom, similar to a Japanese Marudai.  After braiding, the ends are long-spliced together using an original technique.  The result is a continuous loop of cordage, with no visible seam.  The cords will become much more supple during the first few weeks of wear, and will fade over time. They generally lasts between 5 and 10 years if worn 24/7.  Replacement cords are available for $125.  

All cord options benefit from 'cycling'; every 6-ish months, re-position the clasp on the cord, as the connection-point takes much more strain than the rest of the cord.
