These mud cloth pattern Bogolanfini polymer bangles strike a balance between tribal and contemporary jewelry. The colors are perfect and the patterns are purposely loose and energetic.
Each bracelet is formed from two curved mud cloth-patterned tube beads and four spacers joined with a twist. Another version joins over a wider cuff.
They’re from Massachusetts’ Kathleen de Quince Anderson and she sells some of her polymer creations at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington. See her signature heart box and most current works on Instagram.
I was immediately drawn to these pieces….so creative and innovative. Art as it should be…no rules….just one’s energy and path to produce a piece of art that is off the well worn path of hum drum that sometimes seems to be the norm. I would love to see Kathleen’s other creations. I think this should inspire many to think outside the box and be truly creative.
