There is something about the colour red that makes it really special. It has so many different meanings, so many connotations... Think where you have seen it. There is the red stripe on Commander Shepard armor that demands attention, speaks about being a leader and about being ready for whatever comes next. There are red signs on Hawke's skin, the blood magic signs that shows passion and strenght to do what is necessery even if it's sacrificing your own chances for the people you care about. There is red on Ezio's belt that is a warning and a promise. Red often means danger, the colour of blood warning you to stay away. But there is also red on the lovers lips that have been kissed just right, calling to you, luring you closer to touch, to taste.
Sometimes it's hard to tell what red means in this or that place, is it safe to go there? Sometimes you can't find words to describe it. But there is no way you will not notice the red cloth tied around that special someone's wrist just a few hours after the night you spend together. He says that he can't be with you, can't stand it, but you still see this red stigma on him, day after day, month after month. Red band proudly speaking of passion, of loyality, of love, of being drawn to someone despite all the risks. And isn't that the closest meaning, the biggest contradiction of them all?
I was asked to make something Fenris themed with the quote "Nothing could be worse than the thought of living without you". I really liked to try making red cloth again after my previous Assassin's Creed bracelet, so it kind of made sense for me that I should try a bracelet for Fenris piece. In the end I made three of them ^^. They all have the quote, the roses (I don't know why, but I always make Fenris' themed items with roses ~~. Must be something about the thorns
) and the red cloth. All are made of precolored polymer clay on the wooden core. I made the ornaments mostly flat so they would be more durable. They are painted with protective varish. The insides are painted with silver acrylic paint.
All bracelets have around 70mm in diameter, bigger one is 4cm hign, the smaller ones are 2 cm high each.
All the text is handwritten, bracelets are handmade and one of a kind
If you would like to have a closer look, here are the additional photos of each bracelet:
