Asymmetric oxidised silver cuff with 18 carat and 22 carat gold details.
Circumference is 20cm
This stunning piece is a one off bangle from Ruth Aspell Designs.
It is made from oxidised silver (which gives it the black affect) with 18 carat gold and 22 carat gold details. The texture is achieved through the reticulation of the silver (this involves heating the silver so the surface starts to melt)
The designer, Ruth Aspell has a range of experience in the design and crafting of unique and contemporary jewellery. Every piece is made entirely by hand using precious metals and occasionally precious and semi precious stones. Ruth utilises both traditional and modern techniques, exploring texture and colour in her designs. Often marrying the traditional processes of granulation and Keum Boo (fine gold fusing) with a contemporary approach to design. Silver is accented with 18 carat gold to create designs that have a bold contemporary feel yet remain grounded in a tradition of fine craftsmanship and quality materials.
