Skeletal whole-hand bracelet

Delfina Delettrez, a designer in Rome, made this beautiful, polished skeletal bracelet (though I couldn't locate it at her site, which autoplays music) (be warned).

  1. Found a gold version on her site – under ‘bracelets’, last item on the list.

    Reminds me of the vertebrae-style full-finger ring I found a few years back.  Lovely, but a pain in the ass to wear comfortably. 

  2. I wonder if the huge thirty-leven carat diamond rings worn by some Hollywood types would qualify under the California statute.  Thise things could hurt if you got punched by one…

  3. She’s going to regret that auto play audio, now that she’s on BB, her traffic is going to go through the roof and her ISP is going to be really grumpy. :-)

  4. Dual-use jewellery! I wonder if it is structurally sound enough to withstand couple punches if used as a brass knuckles. There are many possibilities for such “battle fashion”…

    I wonder if one could be made as a set of heavy rings that get interlocked in certain position of fingers and reinforce the interlock with the force of impact, distributing load on fingers while focusing it to points on the opponent… If designed well enough, could perhaps even pass as jewellery at a police stop.

    A makeshift knucks can be made from a bunch of keys on a ring – hold them so they stick out between your fingers. Even a humble newspaper can be turned into a weapon – see “Millwall brick”.

  5. It’s lovely…but it is missing something.

    The last two finger digits need to be clad in about 5 more inches of scalpel-sharp Xacto death

    or hydraulic ice picks…something.
