EUCALYPTUS ON TWIG | Bangle in Sterling Silver
This is a solid Sterling Silver bangle with organic British specimens of a local twig and two Eucalyptus seed pods.
These were hand cast as singletons in my workshop using traditional techniques.
This open variable bangle will wrap around your wrist, if you want, or sling onto it.
I used the original 'KangarooT Trees' - Eucalyptus seedpod given to me by the friendly Grafton Nursery in Worcestershire.
They specialise in Eucalyptus, which is an amazing, important and underestimated tree family.
I found particularly interesting that their trees can also be grown further north than usually expected, for instance in the UK.
These particular specimens are the full natural pods from the the Silver-Leaved Mountain Gum.
Its scientific name is Eucalyptus Pulverulenta.
This work is part of the exclusive ‘I am organic - Collection’ which is defined by extraordinarily beautiful natural objects that simply deserve to be cast in precious metals for all eternity.
Out of sheer respect of nature’s beauty, I leave the surfaces organic and use only traditional methods in the creative process.

The internal diameter varies from 51 mm to approximately 70 mm (open).
The Eucalyptus seedpods (pod to pod) are 20 mm long and 9 mm wide, they are soldered to a 2 mm wide Sterling Silver rod with a 3 mm hand cast twig.
