We were commissioned to make a 30th birthday gift for the daughter of a longstanding client. And when the second daughter turned 30, we made a second one!
So in this post, I am getting a bit technical, bear with me as I have a particular interest in the ‘micro-engineering’ that we often have to do in jewellery!
This C-shape bangle, as opposed to a slip-over bangle, makes for a very wearable piece as it hugs closely on the wrist, hence it is subjected to less wear and tear.
One can also get away with using stones on only half, as the bangle cannot rotate on the wrist.
This photo series shows the very intricate process of how we handmake a hinge, clasp, and back-up safety catch.
