The more I read of Pablo Neruda’s gorgeous poetry, the more I fall in love with his work. I just finished reading Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair and it was simply incredible. (You can read my full review here).
I am so in awe of Pablo Neruda’s poetry that I was inspired to create this bracelet with text from my favorite Neruda poem, “Your Laughter” I love the thought of carrying a little piece of love and beauty and romance with me in my day to day life and this bracelet accomplishes that and more!
I have done other bracelets with pearls, ornate bezels, and text in pretty fonts but this poem called for a bracelet in a complete different style. The earthy, straightforward sensuality of a Neruda poem – where sex and love mingle with images of pine trees and salty sea breezes and lovers walking down the cobblestone streets of the island – seemed more suited to a stripped down design where Neruda’s words would take their rightful place as the focal point of the piece.
