Small Banksia Cuff Bracelet - Silver
Sterling Silver Small Banksia Cuff Bracelet
7/8" High x 2 1/4" Wide
- available in either a brushed silver or oxidized grey/black finish.
This striking cuff bracelet is bold yet delicate due to its intricately carved open and organic structure. The form was inspired by the Australian Banksia Pod, hand-carved in wax and then cast. My work distills and reinterprets nature’s diverse patterns, textures, forms, and imperfections. This light and airy design is a real stunner. It's small enough to pair with other bangles or thin bracelets. The larger/wider version of this cuff can be seen here.
In regions prone to fire, many plants and trees evolve some remarkable adaptions that ensure the survival of their species. One such adaption includes the ability to harness the heat and smoke of fires to help disperse their seeds. The Banksia are reliant on both fire and water, as the follicles only split open to release the seeds after they are burned by fire and then soaked by the rains that follow. These clustered openings, or seed chambers, are visually captivating and inspired a number of pieces in my collection.
