A “Rearden Metal” Bracelet!February 18, 2011
It’s supposed to be a reproduction of the bracelet Hank Rearden made from the first pour of Rearden Metal in the novel “Atlas Shrugged.” In the book, the bracelet is the same color, pretty much, kind of a blue-green steel alloy with copper in it. However, it wasn’t supposed to be this pretty- it was made by steel foundry workers, after all!
Rearden’s wife hated it, of course, but Dagny didn’t. (For more, read the book!)
I talk more about it on the Keep Americans Free blog posting here.
