This piece is entirely hand crafted. It is hammered to form an anticlastic curve, which has been left open. The inside of the curve is reddened through heat and then highly polished. The outside is left matte for contrast.
Beautiful modern piece.
Fits medium sized wrists. The opening is approximately 3/4 of an inch wide.
Anticlastic Brushed Silver Bracelet
I have brushed the silver on the outside of the edges of the bracelet to make it have more of a matte sheen while leaving the hollow, or saddle-shaped part of the bracelet polished. It shines from the inside.
This piece is lightweight and delicately curves around the wrist.
“The word synclastic describes a form in which the dominant curves both move in the same direction. When the two dominant axes curve in opposite directions the result is known as an anticlastic form. A bowl is a synclastic form and a saddle is an anticlastic form.” (definition from the Ganoksin Project site)
