Southern Star fabric bangle by Natasha DeSilva

Southern Star fabric sculptured bangle
Buckram and Vintage fabric
Outside diameter: 15cm x 4.5cm high   Inside diameter (cuff): 7.5cm

This is a 3D Sculptured Bangle constructed from the inside out, using a buckram framework to form a geometric polyhedron shape and dressed in vintage Australiana fabric. This is both a functional and sculptural piece featuring protruding ‘fabric jewels’ and Australian native floral iconography on each flat surface of the bangle. The star shape is evocative of the Southern Cross Star Constellation with each of the five protruding points of the bangle representing one star.

Available online.
