This mens bracelet combines the dramatic effect of tigers eye beads with large metal cutout beads. I used seven large tigereye beads for the basis of the bracelet with large silver-tone metal cutout beads for contrast. The intricate metal beads have a bit of a punk flavor with small spikes and swirls on the side, but when you take a close look at the beads, the center decorations look like tiny smiley faces. The beads are separated by ribbed spacers, and a small key with a heart center is suspended from the end of the bracelet.
The bracelet is finished with a lobster claw clasp and a short chain which allows you to change the length to the best fit for your wrist. It is designed for a larger man and can be adjusted between 8 and 10 ½ inches. Tigereye was favored as a gemstone by Roman warriors because it was thought to have protective powers as well as assisting in being all-seeing. The stone has also been worn to strengthen convictions and give courage in adversity. This man’s bracelet combines ancient symbolism and a contemporary design for a dynamic look.
