Bespoke silver triangle bracelet commission

It’s always a real privilege to work with clients to create their dream piece of jewellery. Working together to realise a vision is a lot of fun and, for me, it’s a great opportunity to do a bit of problem solving as well as think about new designs and techniques.

Vintage jewellery design inspiration

For this commission, my client Suzie was inspired by a bracelet from the 1930s by Kay Bojosen, a Danish designer whose philosophy was “great design is something that everyone is entitled to” (see above pic).

This bold, but beautiful design was a great starting point and Suzie was after something quite chunky, but elegant which incorporated open triangles to complement a couple of pairs of my earrings that she already owned.

Having played around with some ideas, I suggested triangles with one slightly longer side which would be linked together with oval connectors. I felt that this worked better visually than using circles and gave a cleaner and more fluid line, more in keeping with the original inspiration.

We agreed on 2mm thick square section ecosilver wire would provide some weight to the piece without it being too heavy. We also discussed how the bracelet would fasten and agreed that, although a bolt clasp would probably be the most secure option, a hook fastening would still be durable whilst fitting better with the overal aesthetic.
