Gloria Lomas Lichen Bangle with Opening and Catch


Availability: 1 in stock

This Gloria Lomas Lichen Bangle With Catch Closure is so unusual and exotic because the artist has devised a way for a mechanical metal clasp to be imbedded into a plant form, the cactus plant. Gloria Lomas, who lived and loved in Miami and NYC, created a big bold style of jewelry with all kinds of inventive techniques. Many of the pieces that I acquired for my private collection were created from lichen, tree mushrooms, that harden into wood and can be dried and painted and worked with like wood. Gloria had a large style presence in every room. Her aura was bright and bold. Her work was intricately made using natural materials, paint, stones, instinct, and glue. I admire her style and her strength. This remarkable bangle made from tree lichen, has a hinged section that opens and closes with a metal plunger catch.
