Nail and Spiral Screw Bracelet with Cork Leather
This is one seriously Cool and Eco Friendly bracelet!
Chrissie C has crafted this unusual style using a 5mm cork leather -
Why did we use cork?
Cork is “simply the bark of the cork oak tree" but the process to harvest is quite tricky! Cork is a 100% sustainable product, and harvesting is done by specialised professionals and no damage is ever done to a tree during the harvesting process. Trees can be harvested round 17 times working on the average of 200 years for an oak tree
Cork ages without deteriorating due mainly to its resistance to moisture as the Suberin (waterproofing waxy substance) in the cell walls makes cork practically impermeable to liquids
This makes cork a very sturdy option for jewellery making thanks to its “honey comb” structure. It is highly abrasive resistant
We source our cork from Portugal and it is feels like leather, but the cord comes from the cork oak tree and not from an animal - Cork is suitable for vegans and vegetarians as it is 100% leather free
It is soft and silky to the touch and is very comfortable to wear.. Cork is natural, renewable and sustainable raw material
So lets look at the positive points of cork leather
1. Eco Friendly
3. Vintage Look
5. Easy to maintain
6. Easy to clean - Cork is stain resistant and can be cleaned with soap and water.
This bracelet features a stainless steel "Nail" design which was very complex in production! Your bracelet is finished off with a stainless steel intricate magnetic "spiral screw" design clasp. The outer detail moves on the threads for added interest!
Perfect for the individualist who seeks something a a little different.

To ensure you get the perfect fit for your styling...
1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape, strip of paper or piece of string , where you would normally wear the bracelet. The tape should be firm around the wrist but not tight.
2: If you are using a strip of paper or cord, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your exact wrist size.
