Cara Croninger Lucite Bowl Bangle


Availability: 1 in stock

Cara CRONINGER , a pioneer in the use of plastics, acrylics, resins, and leather, was an American great! I met her when we were both represented by SCULPTURE TO WEAR gallery in 1974. She was beginning to be featured in top fashion magazines due to her collaborations with GEOFFREY BEENE . Some of her pieces in my private collection are from her very early days in fashion news. I represented her from the day I opened ARTWEAR in 1977 and even long after I closed the gallery. She was a color genius, and master sculptress. Her forms and techniques were so original, with a strong shamanic feeling, embedded with her soul and spirits that traveled through her into her work. While the acrylic slice bangles would sell in groupings of 3-5, or even one at a time @$70 each, she was a raging success. A leader in the realms of art jewelry, women artists, fashion jewelry history.
I call this a Blow bangle but it’s more like a bowling ball 🎳. Whopper indeed, perfect for all the demands from the fashion stylists and photographers who craved this eye candy jewelry. The demand by the fashion magazines and from designers themselves, asking for runway show pieces, it was a constant flow of energy. This very large bangle can actually be worn for quite a while, but when off, it becomes a magnificent sculpture on your table. Carved sections, and cracked, chipped away sections that are then polished like melted ice make this an iconic and drool worthy collectors treasure. Over 1 lb.
