Part of the ongoing exploration of primitive handmade forms these petroglyph bangles are shaped inspired by the simple bold expressions found in rock pictures. The material is a thoroughly modern PVC plastic that has been heat formed and carved to create these irregular shapes.
The non flat shape of the plastic combined with free form design suggests an organic origin, here a group of the bangles is stacked on a bracelet stand.
This animation shows the formation of a custom made neckpiece made out of hand dyed cotton and a pair of polymer clay buttons. This was a project that started out with the customer considering the metal neck coils worn by members of traditional cultures and evolved into this realization in cotton fiber.

The small void carved into the rim of the bracelet represents the shadow of the earth's penumbria on the moon that can bee seen during an eclipse.
One of the series of bone bangles which might be re-titled "moon bangles" this small oval shaped bangle is perfect for people who have smaller hands. These bracelets won't slip off the way larger bangles tend to do. These special designs are thin and lightweight but extremely strong.
