Now, over 90 percent of the pieces of glass bangles I use for my craft are repurposed from broken ones. I like to think that I’m giving these discarded bangles a new lease on life by using them to transform a simple wooden box or papier mache ball into a colorful, vibrant work of art.
The ideas for the glass bangle designs come from my heart and mind, but how the finished objet d’art looks is dictated by the glass bangles themselves and the many steps involved in the process. No two designs are ever the same, but when each piece is completed it gives me feeling of warmth. It makes me smile. And depending on the color scheme, they often energize or soothe me.
I am very proud of these glass bangle creations, and I hope you find as much enjoyment in them as I do. Every piece is made with love and attention to detail as it is the only one that I will create out of that given set of dazzling bangle pieces.
One more note: When I make a one-of-a-kind product, I believe it needs a one-of-a-kind bag to carry it in! In the spirit of giving new life to old materials, I’ve designed gift bags using colorful, glossy pages from discarded magazines. These bags are all cute and one-of-a-kind, and each purchase you make comes with its own bag. I’m sure you’ll find many uses for them also!
Bangles have been an integral part of the culture of India since ancient times. CLICK HERE to learn more about the bangles I import from India.
