Straits Chinese Twisted Silver Bangles
These twisted silver bangles are the keepsakes of the Straits Chinese of this region, once worn during mourning and now a sentimental curio accessory. From the 1900s till the second World War, these heavy pieces were handcrafted and commonly worn and later melted down. It is not an easy task for modern tribal designs to measure up to their poetry and primitive aesthetic. Time cannot be hurried; timelessness cannot be forged.
