in a nutshell, the morrígan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. she sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors.
this wrist cuff bracelet is 95% hand-sewn with very little machine sewing (just on the ends for reinforcement). it is adorned with both vintage and antique beads, buttons and lace, as well as a vintage chandelier crystal. it fastens in the back with snap hidden underneath an antique cream button.
belisama is the celtic goddess of fire. more specifically, she was connected with lakes and rivers, fire, crafts and light. this wrist cuff was designed for a bold, fiery lady. (maybe i should keep it?)
i’ve gotten bored of snap closures so i tried my hand at some hand-made clasps. i think they need a bit of work, but this isn’t too terribly bad, for a beginner, if i do say so myself. (shhhh if you think it sucks — i’m trying to boost my ego a bit here — i’m no metal worker) i wear every cuff for a few hours to make sure it’s “perfect” and i think i’m going to reinforce the clasp a bit as one side shifts and turns a tiny bit.
