We all know how clothes are made – there’s a huge focus on cut and tailoring when it comes to what we wear but how much do we know about how jewellery is made? Probably not that much. The techniques used to make jewellery are ancient and fascinating. The Great British Sewing Bee proves that with a sewing machine and a pattern pretty much anyone can make a dress but can the same be said about a bracelet or a ring? No it can’t. 2015 is largely being touted as the year of the “mangle” (that’s a mind numbing portmanteau of man and bangle) and it’s true, the wrist has become the most sought over space for product placement in menswear. This is a tricky trend though. Don’t overdo it, don’t buy cheap beads and don’t buy anything that won’t seamlessly compliment any outfit you wear. My advice is to keep it super simple and chic. My pick is the elipse bangle from Stephen Einhorn. Ergonomically curved to fit the contours of your wrist it feels more like an extension of the body than an external fashion accessory. Have a look at the exclusive images below that show how it’s made.
