Sterling Silver Flip Top Bracelet, "Southern Oak", The Cargo Hold, Charleston, SC, New
The inspiration behind this delicate bracelet resonates with many people. Southern or live oak was widely used in early American shipbuilding. Because of the trees' short height and how-hanging branches, lumber from live oak was specifically used to make curved structural members of the hull, such as knee braces. In such cuts of lumber, the line of the grain would fall perpendicular to the lines of stress, creating structures of exceptional strength.
2" length, 2 1/2" width. Southern Oak medallion - 7/8" diameter. This will fit a wrist that normally wears a bracelet 7 1/4" to 7 1/2" bracelet.
