“Queen of the Night” Bracelet (Limited Edition of 10)


Limited Edition Bracelet Inspired by “The Magic Flute”

6.5″ Long x 1″ Wide

Artist, Jameka Wrisbon Purdie, was inspired by the “Queen of the Night” character in the Magic Flute Opera to create a limited edition bracelet (10 bracelets).  Each bracelet is handmade and has a unique combination of Swarovski crystallized pearls. The ban/base of this bracelet is created with odd count peyote stitch using glass Miyuki Delica seed beads in hematite. Each bracelet uses just under 2,000 of the tiny glass cylinders.

The embellishment uses white and light grey Swarovski crystallized pearls attached with a right angle weave. The artist used a combination of two different thermally bonded, braided beading threads–Fire Line (Beadsmith) and Wildfire (Beadalon).  The beautifully stitched band feels light and sturdy around the wrist and has a sterling silver clasp. The Swarovski crystallized pearls and Miyuki Delica seed beads create a brilliant effect.

Each bracelet is particularly memorable because of its extraordinary and intricate presentation similar to the wide, two-octave vocal range in the aria, “Der Hölle Rache”, performed by the Queen of the Night, a coloratura soprano part, in the second act of Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte).
