Mathilda’s © Bh textured bracelet to hold her Barbara Heath charm collection – her eleventh birthday gift commissioned by her Mum, Kirsti Simpson.
Commissioned for Peter McTavish from his wife, Wendy.
The studio started with the all the historical clan emblems available, one from the family and a previous wide wrist band Peter had found at the local Eumundi markets as a size indicator. Barbara has retained all her leather working tools from the 1970s and it was a delight to go back to this medium. We started by working up the vector line artwork both by hand and computer until we had all elements signed off and Juan-Luis could start the minute saw cuts that have realised this task. The shot below is of the emblem prior to chemical oxidisation and the fitting of the pins that secure the piece to the leather band.
Hand made solid silver buckle and lip finish off this one-of-a-kind commission, we love it!
6 mm oval 925 silver with in-line symbols, all with details oxidised
This commission is loaded with sentiment, we were asked to create a new modern handmade Bracelet styled on an antique styled Indian one that was a very special gift. Almost a four day make with secure clasp and complex details which had to be repeated and exactly the same, all on the same oval
