A refined and essential recreation of the bracelets worn by my mother in the late seventies. The delicate sound of the knocking of wood on wood. A click-clack evocative of femininity and care.
These jewels are hand-turned from African grenadilla wood, or cocus wood, and old oriental plane from Barcelona, left to dry for a long period of time. Some have round sections as a tribute to classical slave bangles, while others are geometric in shape and create small sculptural contours on wrists.
Two other types of handcrafted bracelets, lacquered to protect the shining wood, are in lacquered piano black and in Cortana pink silk tulle.
