The chunky size 8 cylinder beads that make up the bulk of this bracelet are reminiscent of iron armor plates, and the two basic components resemble swords and shields, evoking images of female knights in medieval times, something of an anachronism but easily imaginable in the modern day.
Peyote stitch, netting.
