Three fish are etched into the silver. Gold is applied using the ancient technique of Keum Boo. The piece is shaped anti-clastically and a patina is applied. It is finally tumbled to achieve a striking finish. The overall effect is a subtle yet memorably beautiful bracelet that evokes the dark waters of a river with beams of light piercing through.
