St Cuthbert's bead bangle

St Cuthbert's bead bangle

65.00

Hand forged sterling silver bangle with a silver St Cuthbert’s bead drop.

Simple and elegant, this lovely bangle will look great on its own or stacked up with other bangles.

St Cuthbert’s beads are tiny fragments of crinoid stems – a marine echinoderm related to sea urchins and starfish – which lived in the shallow waters around the island around 300 million years ago. The small bead-like fossils wash onto the beach and, in medieval Northumberland, were strung together as necklaces or rosaries and became associated with St Cuthbert. 

After much searching, I found several example of these on the beaches around Holy Island. Now cast in sterling silver, they are a perfect addition to the collection and its connection with this special place.

Fully hallmarked by the Sheffield Assay Office
