A New Direction

After 18 years of making bangles, how do you come up with something new? Not just a new design, but a fundamentally new direction.

The answer came to me while working on a series of mobiles/stabiles. The overlapping and elaboration of geometric triangles in the mobile below gave me an idea.

The result, after loosening up the idea, is a collapse bracelet. Instead of a rigid bangle, the geometric elements stand or collapse with wrist movement, creating a wristpiece that has a life of its own, that changes personality when it interacts with the wearer.

"Collapse" Bracelet, 2
