Incised pattern wide bangle bracelet made from modern thermoplastic materials. The pattern of grooves and stippling is based on ancestral heritage design. The stylized wave pattern is created by the hand held tools and free form application.
Simple geometric circular form of white thermoplastic (PVC) with interlocking pinned connections. Connections are secured with brass pins friction fit in precision drilled holes. The finish is a smooth matte with small irregularities
An explosion of color comes to life with this extra wide cuff. The knot design is a long turks head made with 21 parts and 10 bights on a mold. The double pass (2 strand) creates the requested 3" width.
The colors were dip-dyed in a progressive process starting with the darker turquoise blue, the the lime green and ending with celosia orange.
In this view you can see the elongated proportions. The size requested was only 7 1/2" so the weave is open and flexible to allow this cuff to settle comfortably on the forearm.
Each color required time to dry followed by treatment with a mordant to reduce the color bleeding
