This bracelet is named after the year when Jeanne was executed by burning. The inspiration behind this statement piece This bracelet symbolizes Jeanne d'Arc's death sentence. After she died, the English raked back the coals to expose her charred body so that no one could claim she had escaped alive. They then burned the body twice more, to reduce it to ashes and prevent any collection of relics, and cast her remains into the Seine River. That is what the skulls symbolizes. The metal spike studs are a reminder that she never let her guard down, she always fought for her ideals. The three hearts represent her legacy. We may not have the remains of her body since the English wanted to prevent it from being a relic. What we do have is her story. Her story will forever live on. A warrior who fought for what she believed in, regardless of the social or legal obstacles.
