I was asked to make a bangle for the dean who was retiring and has a love of and a reputation for bangles. She had worked at the Royal College of Art for many years, and her colleagues wanted to give her something unique and personal which served as a reminder of her time spent at the college.
The time frame was very short. I had never made a bangle before, but I had been working with maps, specifically maps of the area of London I had recently moved to in order to attend the RCA. I decided to use a traditional bangle form and cross section which looked solid from the outside, but which had a map pinpointing the location of the RCA on the inside. A light rod connects the outside to the inside.
