Here are a few exciting pieces that arrived this week. The first is a gold bracelet by Finnish designer, Björn Weckström. The piece is was titled by the artist “Psychadelic Orchid” and with its vibrant surface texture and intricate lines, I can understand what was meant by the name. This is the first substantial gold piece that I’ve purchased for Hopea and it feels like one of those keystone pieces in the collection.
My other exciting acquisition this week came in the form of a collection of bangles by Canadian artist Guy Vidal. Vidal’s bracelets typically consist of linked pieces. The bangles he designed are notoriously difficult to come across, but are perhaps his finest work, in my opinion. I was downright giddy when they arrived in their original boxes no less. They truly are wearable, freestanding sculpture. I also plan on posting more in depth about these pieces soon.
