Odd Shots on Monday

This is not a bowl or urn of some sort. But rather a silver & pewter ceremonial bracelet from Fomba, Africa. My new friend, Jae Sturtevant, has a booth of beautiful African and Indonesian antiques and artifacts at Dovetail and Second Street Antiques in Katy. I actually bought something (which I will show later), but not this. I must say I WAS tempted~but it was just a tad too large! Actually, it is HUGE.
Go see Katney for more Odd Shots. She will be glad you stopped by~

That is pretty odd for a bracelet. You're right, it's huge.

Nice Odd shot today.

The bracelet is really pretty, but it does look big. I have a tiny wrist so I am particular about braclets. They bother me if they dangle down to low.

It is beautiful. But if it is a large as it looks, it would certainly be odd.

Beautiful craftsmanship ~ a very unique and unusual piece. I've never been one to wear large bracelets, but I dearly love dangly earrings! Can't wait to see your treasure.
