November’s commission feature is a beautiful Zurich skyline bangle. This bangle started life as birthday gift vouchers, when my client received her vouchers we started planning as she wanted something made especially for her.
Having lived in Zurich, it was the view closest to her heart and she wanted to have it on her as a daily reminder of her time there. She chose a bangle because it meant she could have a 360 degree view of buildings in the city that she liked as well as a view over the Alps and one of the more famous bridges in the city. In order to fit everything on, including the very tall and elegant spires of Fraumünster, we decided to make the bangle wider than my usual landscape bangles.
The view from the city across the mountains needed two layers, one for the Alps and the other for the lower mountains around the lake. In order to do this I made the landscape section in a few sections to ensure I got the layers and buildings sitting neatly next to them too.
As you go around the skyline bangle you can see where the landscape meets the buildings, the bridge, back to buildings and then landscape again. Much better than any photographs of the area, she can see the whole skyline as though standing on a bridge in the city!
If you’re interested in having a piece made for a loved one or friend, you can buy gift vouchers here and these can be redeemed on anything in my online shop or by contacting me about a commission.
