Black Panther Bracelet


Found this enamelled and bedazzled panther bracelet for $5 at Flashback in Kensington Market last week. It is an homage (meaning a copy that is just slightly off) of a 1990s-era piece by Ciner. Unsigned, it’s still a heavy-duty piece of arm candy. It’s so de trop that I think I could wear it with a garbage bag for New Year’s Eve and still look like a glamorous and sophisticated lady.

Ciner made a lot of costume pieces for films and movie stars, and their pieces are known for their glamour. While my aesthetic runs toward modernist studio jewellery, I am still drawn to the bright shininess of what they call Hollywood Regency.
