Experiments on the structure of minerals. The shape of these rings is taken from a lovely chunk of Aragonite from Morocco. Usually a pinky orange in a natural state, I've cast them in black resin with varying copper lustre highlighting the surface and edges and an oxidised silver band.
The structure shows that it radiates from a central point. The texture reminds me of fossilised wood.
The copper bangle pictured to compliment the metallic tones was originally used pre-war in agriculture made by a specialist English maker of police equipment. It's lovely and worn with a makers mark and has a screw in pin so that it opens out like a cuff but can easily be slipped on and off as a solid bangle.
