About Me

The Bangle


Bangles, in many cultures, are not just worn as ornamental jewelry. For each culture, tradition and beliefs play a huge part in the wearing of bangles and each piece is represented and worn for particular reasons. Some for male or female aesthetics and some as identifying marks of a particular society. The natural resources in certain areas dictated the materials used to make the bangle. But there is no doubt about the craftsmanship and imagination that went into those designs.
I used the bangle as my identifying icon not only because I love the look and have been wearing them for over 20 years, but because it has a significance to me. I wear my bangle on my right wrist, of the hand I draw, design and create with. The open circle shape represents a strong cohesive structure but because of the opening at the top, is not so rigid. So similarly, I feel my creativity flows like the circle but is not so closed off and stiff as not to learn and adapt and experience new ideas.
