Oscar Wilde 1882 American Tour Charm Bracelet with 6 Altered Art Picture Charms

by Threecats

This bracelet was inspired by and dedicated to Oscar Wilde's 1882 American Tour when he traversed by the US by locomotive lecturing on aesthetic ideals and helping to promote the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta "Patience" which was inspired by his aesthetic movement. Sunflowers and lilies were amongst the symbolism associated with his popularity during this venture. Many popular songs, newspaper interviews, and stories featured Oscar during his American trek. The Eiffel Tower is included as Oscar was very fond of Paris and his final resting place at Pere Lachaise Cemetery is there. Altered artwork all originates from 1882 and includes sheet music art, newspaper illustrations, and one of the photographs from the famous series taken in New York by Sarony. Joining the charms are Czech glass beads (some in blue and white to symbolize the china Oscar was so fond of) and shiny gun metal seed beads.

Durable 7/8" altered art charms are laser printed on acid free paper, covered with sturdy mylar, professionally assembled in a button press machine, and securely adhered to brass picture frame charms which have been polished, dusted on the back with glitter, and sealed. Any reflective glare does not appear on the actual charms.

This bracelet is strung on a professional quality beading wire and closes with a silver plated lobster claw clasp. It measures approximately 7 3/4" long.

***I would be glad to replace the lobster claw with a toggle clasp upon request***

This charm bracelet will arrive at its destination safely resting in a gift box.

I have also researched and produced a CD of popular songs written during Oscar's American Tour. They are available to hear at my Soundcloud page: https://soundcloud.com/tooscar/sets
