This intricate leaf bangle is part of the brand Nawalika’s ‘Fossilisation’ collection. Made from aluminium upcycled from engine parts and cookware, this bangle epitomises the collection’s aim of “juxtaposing bold and delicate”.
The ‘leaf’ detail is made possible through the use of the lost wax casting technique, which Michelle Verwiel learnt as a hobby before starting Nawalika with her mother Celine. Michelle and Celine are often inspired by the environment around them, and when they noticed the detailed lines of this leaf they knew that the natural arrangement would make a beautiful design.
