Ruthanne asked us if we would make a special bangle for her, Allie from Plush Jewellery met with her and, over a couple of cups of coffee, they talked over Ruthanne's ideas for the design and the sort of jewellery that she usually wore. The original idea would lead to a lightweight, wire work bangle, however, Ruthanne has a preference for chunkier jewellery and loves more tactile finishes.
With all this in mind; Allie went away to produce designs that balanced these considerations. Ruthanne wanted a bangle that she would be able to wear every day and with her love of tactile finishes in mind, the first adaptation was to design a faux clasp; one that had detail but would be smooth and tactile to wear. The design for the heart was made chunkier, which, again, allowed us to apply a very tactile finish to the free moving heart - great "fiddle factor" - but also served a practical purpose to protect the small handpicked pearls set within it.
