Tanzanite & Silver Constellation Bangle

This lovely little commission was designed to celebrate a 45th Birthday. It’s patterned with a scattering of 45 tiny blue tanzanites and a myriad of small drill holes:

It began as a simple, oval wire bangle which I polished and then matt finished with a heavy, stippled texture. After that I marked out the pattern of the constellation before drilling it and marking the bangle up for setting. A mixture of 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm tanzanites are set around it, flush with the surface of the silver.

The final piece is a subtle collection of silvery blue shades. The blue of the tanzanites matches beautifully with the soft gleam of the silver:

Commission – Engraved Bangle

This lovely little commission went through the workshop over the summer, the engraved detail comes from a drawing the recipient did on her 21st Birthday.

The engraving stretches around the front face of the bangle and I was really pleased to get such an interesting design to work into a piece. The main body of the bangle is a reversed D section, with the comfortable curve next to the wrist and the larger, flat surface area facing out to take the engraving.
