Primary Symbol Plaque Bracelet
This bracelet is designed and handmade in our studio in Shoreditch, East London. The 'Three Primes' or 'Tria Prima' are the base of everything according to alchemy. Salt is the base matter, mercury is the connection between the high and the low and sulphur is the omnipresent spirit of life. This chunky hand engraved bracelet has been cast in sterling silver, hand finished and then oxidised.
Alchemy, a transformation. An ancient art, a philosophy, wisdom to make, of some base material, something sublime. From lead to gold, from corrupt to divine, turning to celestial spheres and a protean science to discover, learning from geometry, from raw matter. In a grain of salt, one million atoms, one million souls. We live the future, but where now is our philosopher's stone, our greater understanding of ourselves and the universe? What corners remain unsearched? What too have we forgotten?
