Part of the “Inspired by…” series, the Ariadne Bracelet is inspired by the Strauss opera Ariadne auf Naxos. It’s an opera within an opera but the overarching theme of both operas is love.
Bead colors represent the classic costume colors of a Commedia dell’Arte Troupe (Zerbinetta, Harlequin and co.) and glass hearts evoke the theme of love.
Charms represent: Crown – Princess Ariadne, she becomes the constellation “The Crown”; Grapes – Bacchus, God of wine; Love – Heart; Masks – Commedia dell’arte performers.”When a newer god approaches, we surrender, silent”
All “Inspired By…” Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
