Jacques Jarrige

"Meanders" Bracelet, 2016
Gold plated brass
Hand-hammered, gold plated brass bracelet, referencing the gestures of his "Meanders" body of work. Jarrige's jewelry is more companion than ornament, heightening one's physical awareness and bestowing the pleasure of inhabiting a well-built structure — a structure so light that it doesn't weigh on the body — while delivering the theatricality of Jarrige's fluid gestures, translated into common yet gorgeously crafted metals. Their intentional lack of preciousness allows for spontaneous playfulness.
