Canyon Bangle, 18ct Gold
This unusual Chrysoprase and 18ct gold bracelet was inherited by a client from one of her in-laws but was sadly not to her taste. Instead of having the piece sit in her jewellery box for years to come she asked if I could design her a bangle that had a more contemporary feel that she could enjoy wearing everyday.
This bangle is one of my favourite designs and I get asked to make it a lot for people. Made by melting down the 18ct gold into ingots which are then beaten, forged and milled into their organic bangle shape, I then melt small cuttings of gold into granules which are hand-soldered in clusters, into the ravines and depressions around the outside of the design.
