Blue John Stone Bangle

This silver, titanium and carborundum crystal bangle is inspired by the shapes and forms found in Blue John Stone. This mineral is a variety of fluorite found in Derbyshire, UK. Visiting the Treak Cliff Cavern, where Blue John Stone can be found in situe, formed a starting point for my degree show. Ironically, Blue John Stone is not actually blue, but instead purple. The titanium has been anodised blue, and the silver pieces on the back of the bangle have carborundum crystals pressed into the surface to mimic the sparkle seen on many mineral specimens.
