Bracelet En Cade

I started this project when i was around 10 in Ardeche in France staying at my grand mothers house, but only finished it at the age of 27 when i found the pieces of wood in a box after moving. It is made from cade which is a small shrub that grows in the south of france and has a strong smell, very similar to cypress pine. I cut these pieces of timber out of the shrub, dried them and cut them into blocks... there was lots of time and space for this sort of thing at my grandmothers which was essentially a piece of forest with old stone ruins on it including my grandmothers house which was a re-built and renovated one. Here is a bit about the timber used: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juniperus_oxycedrus
