Jacques Jarrige

"Rhea" Bracelet , 2016
Gold plated Brass
2 x 2.50 in (5.08 x 6.35 cm)
Gold plated bracelet, hand hammered. 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. Small, medium and large versions of this piece are available.
