Vane Collection

About this project

The Vane collection is inspired by the fibres that radiate from the quill of a feather, called the vane.  It includes bracelets and necklaces constructed from a series of discs cut from screen printed, anodised aluminium and spaced along a flexible core.  The bright edges describe a seemingly solid form which is contradicted by light reflecting on the coloured surfaces.  Fastened with magnets the bracelets can be joined together to create a variety of necklace shapes.  Available from my website.
