Charm Bracelet Brooch

Year:2003, Material: rubber sheet , silver / hand cut

Charm bracelet has a strong commercial image as a souvenir or a gift in our times. I made this piece for a curated exhibition "Charmed Lives" at Facèrè Jewelry Art Gallery in Seattle. I tried to create a fresh image about this traditional jewelry form. I found its silhouette as a strong decorative image. The flexible material, rubber adds the playfulness to it. Dimension: 10x9 cm

This piece was featured in the article, “Trinket to Talisman: Contemporary Charms”, by Vicki Halper, Metalsmith, vol.25 fall 2004
