Permanent Collection




Gold / Silver


The stunning Blunk Bangle features a cylindrical solid 14k recycled gold band fitted with a sliding charm. Crafted by hand, this bracelet is cast from a unique piece of jewelry made in 1965 by the legendary Northern Californian artist JB Blunk (1926–2002). The original, composed of 18k gold, was a gift for Jacqueline Johnson, a writer and poet, and the wife of the British-born Surrealist painter Gordon Onslow Ford. As much a piece of wearable kinetic sculpture as it is an example of fine jewelry-making, the Blunk Bangle feels at once ancient and totally contemporary – there’s no other bracelet quite like it. Blunk began making jewelry in 1954 at Palos Verdes College in Los Angeles where he taught ceramics – he continued to make one-off pieces throughout his life from his studio in Inverness, California.

Permanent Collection selected this bracelet to be faithfully reproduced in exceptionally limited quantities so that Blunk’s rare designs could become part of the collections of a new generation.
