super thin stackable bracelets 4029

A little stack of little bracelets created from thermoplastic but shaped and finished to resemble traditional horn, ivory, or bone materials often used by traditional cultures. Since the illegal ivory trade is destroying the elephant population in Africa it is important to find alternative materials that can offer similar properties to recreate traditional forms.

Stacked this collection is less than 1" high.
Composed of four slightly oval shaped pieces these bangles are made from white PVC plastic. Cut from a section of round pipe and then shaped to remove the edges the finishing reveals the pure white color of the material.

Progressive treatment with fine sand paper creates a matte surface. Final polishing with felt media brings out the textured surface with highlights.
