Our fabulous Dionysus Bear Bracelet. Created by Simon Harrison and chosen by Adorn. The ‘bearskins’ are made from delicately flexible chainmail. Tactile and very comfortable to wear, the glass eyes give this stunning chap real character. Over 500 tiny tufts of ‘fur’ gently move with every gesture of the body. The bracelet fastens via a sprung clasp in the bear’s jaws which attached to his tail!
Simon’s Dionysus Bear is inspired by the story of the god’s escape from pirate capture after being mistaken for a prince. Dionysus was kidnapped and held for ransom so the god turned into a lion and manifested a bear to help him escape. Dionysus escaped the shackles of the ship, making this particular myth synonymous with freedom and liberty. The highly detailed and unique Bear necklace, bracelets and earrings are full of movement and expression. Created for people who similarly refuse to be confined by the shackles of stylistic conventions.
