Purple and Silver and Ancient Style

In the past several hundred years we've come a long way as a species. But there are some things we did centuries ago that still fascinate. Some brilliant person created a way to weave small metal rings in to gorgeous repeating patterns and today we still love these creations.

This weave, known as Byzantine, utilizes bold purple rings to show off the design and its mesmerizing pattern. While creating this bracelet I found myself transported back to another time and pondering the vision of our ancient ancestors.
