An armful of big, wide, bangles has always been one of my favorite jewelry statements. On the other hand a bunch of bracelets clanking on my arms is just irritating, so even though I love the bold look I haven’t always indulged in it. Then last year started to notice the multiple bracelet trend known of as the “arm party”. It occurred to me that if there was ever a time to enjoy wearing a few wide bangles on one arm now was the time. I began looking around to augment my collection. Unfortunately, although it’s easy to locate skinny bangles the wide ones are pretty hard to find.
So when Fragments.com contacted me to look through their online catalog of unique designer jewelry I thought about big bangles, and wondered if any of their designers were thinking about them too. It seems that Ashley Pittman, who works with artisans in Kenya to create her elegant ethnic-inspired line of jewelry, also likes bangles, both big and small. She offers a number of slim bangles, pictured above, as well the wide bangles I so adore. Ashley Pittman’s jewelry is made of horn and bronze, and she donates 10% of her profits to fund a rural health center and primary school in Kenya.
How gorgeous are these big bangles?
Really gorgeous, I think.
