Each individual jewellery design is handmade by artisan Jane Hodgetts in her studio in Hobart, Tasmania.
A speciality hammered finish creates a faceted textual quality to this 5 loop brass bangle. The brass loops intertwine with one another to create a truely unique sculptural piece.
Each bangle is individually handmade and may differ slightly to that in the photograph. Bangles come in a standard size as they can be slightly manipulated due to the unique way they are made to adjust to fit over bigger hands. These bangles also look great worn up higher on the arm, just below the elbow. This bangle is approximately 7cm in diameter.
Jane aims for her work to show traces of process, irregular shapes, hammer marks, naturally patined brass and rubbed back painted surfaces. It is the acceptance of the imperfections in her work that she considers a subtle rebellion against the more polished mainstream, that she considers its strength and uniqueness.
