A rare foray into brass : )
This Brass bangle is heavily etched on the outside and inside it is stamped 'Astral'. Brass isn't a metal we often use at Smith & Sun, but for this collection we thought it was important to include it. The Astral Ancestors collection is inspired by a journey from the earth's core to outer space - SO it totally makes sense to include Brass - I mean molten Lava, mixed with Copper, Zinc and a bit of sweat... is what we are all about.
But fantasy geology aside, Brass is a great metal to have on you: It resets chaos - It keeps your mind young, alert, open and allows the wearer to have better control of time. I mean save on the face lift and buy a bangle : )
I have made several different ones (with varying designs and marks) , so its pot luck which one you get, unless you email... They are fairly adjustable - If you need a specific size, please let me know!
From the AW20 collection Astral Ancestors:
The inspiration for the Astral Ancestors collection is a scent - A perfumed oil that captures the spirit of an imagined journey - From the Earth's Core to Outer Space.
"There was something undefined and complete, existing before Heaven and Earth. How still it was, how formless, standing alone and undergoing no change, reaching everywhere with no danger of being exhausted. It may be regarded as the mother of all things. Truthfully it has no name, but I call it Tao." (Tsu, 1972)
