I have always loved the mystique behind the brass coils worn on the necks of the women from the Kayan Lahwi tribe and was inspired to make something that has some of the drama. I hoped to capture some of that magic through this extra elongated stacked bangle cuff. It does actually have a slightly optically elongating effect to the arm.

For this cuff, I have created a multi-bangle effect, yet the "bangles" are all attached to guide rods and not loose. I have always loved the look of multiple bangles worn on the arm, but I always lose them and am not fond of the constant up and down clanking that occurs all day long. So, I made something with all the drama, but minus the noise and easier to maintain, without having to keep up with 20+ separate pieces.

In addition to being inspired by the Kayan Lahwti tribe, I love the idea behind other cultural traditions of wearing bangles as well. One tradition of wearing bangles (churi), which is an indian one, is a symbol of matrimony. Traditional churi bangles are made of glass and Indian women attempt to wear as many small glass bangles as possible at her wedding and the honeymoon will end when the last bangle breaks. Such a romantic idea!

I have seen images of belly dancers wearing bangles as well, and upon further investigation I found that many would wear bangles because of the ability to shake the wrists to create a jingling sound while dancing. My design doesn't make any sound, but would definitely fit the part aesthetically as an accessory to a traditional belly dancer outfit.

Frequently asked questions about JamieSpinello

MADE TO ORDER ITEMS: Most of my items require approximately 2-3 weeks for production by hand before shipment and are made to order. Production requirements for my pieces vary from design to design, because of different processes involved. The estimated time required before shipment can be found under the "shipping & polices" tab and on the invoice after purchase.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS:
If an item states it is "READY TO SHIP", it will be shipped in 1-3 business days.

MULTIPLE ITEMS IN ORDER: Orders containing multiple items may take longer than the estimate. I encourage customers to contact me with questions if they are hoping to meet a deadline for gift giving or receipt. Please contact me with any concerns!
For all of my items it is a good idea to avoid harsh cleaning chemicals and or extended periods of submersion in water. Most metals oxidize and react to being exposed to acids in household cleaners, shampoos, and even face wash. To prolong the life of your jewelry, I suggest that you keep your pieces in a dry place (hanging up if a necklace) and to avoid over exposure to water and chemicals.
All of my work ships from my studio in Austin, Tx.
I use a wide array of processes for creating my work. All of my pieces are made in my studio. I forge, solder, fabricate, cast, carve, etch, and weld everything myself in my studio in Austin, Tx. I do not outsource, when you buy from me, you buy my original real hand made work made in my studio.
I do accept custom requests and personalized orders. Please shoot me a message first so we can get started. I am not able to accept all custom requests at all times, so please contact me first to find out my availability. Thank you.
