Beautiful handmade Bangles by a creative genius.


Wearable art is the future of fashion

Today I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with my dear friend Scorpio. He is a tall, striking man , stylish and gregarious, who is so talented, it is slightly intimidating. He’s also very humble , which is a very endearing quality.

Scorpio makes textile based artwork, sewing , appliqueing  and embroidering his pieces. He’s very inspired by the punk aesthetic , having worked alongside Vivianne Westwood for a period of time, but he also has a strong tribal and folk art streak. He makes gorgeous one off pieces of wearable art , be they clothing or accessories that are fastidiously and beautifully hand crafted. Scorpio and Hannah                  Here is Scorpio with the lovely Hana, Sue Kreitzman’s PA.

Today I bought this scrumptious piece of jewelry, a one off piece that is absolutely stunning. IMAG1348 IMAG1349_1 IMAG1351_1More of a cuff than a bangle, this is a large statement piece of jewelry, hand embroidered , hand beaded and mirrored and lined with rich blue velvet, it not only looks beautiful on my wrist but feels really cosy. This piece is mine. You can’t have it. But here are some other pieces he has made:

Each of these delightful pieces of wearable art are totally unique. If you’d like to purchase your own piece of wearable art, the larger bangles are £60 and the smaller, £40.
