Internationally collected, Michael is renowned for the elegance and simplicity of his designs, the quality of the gorgeous stones, and the contemporary allure of his extraordinary inlaid pieces. In this bold, but delicate bracelet, a natural sugilite and turquoise dragonfly floats on the rich shimmer of highly polished sterling silver bars, as if hovering above sun-sparkled water. The gorgeous depths of the sugilite (a rare stone, found only in southern Africa) is accentuated by the brilliant gleam of the silver. The dragonfly is a study in light and dark, with its combination of shining silver, dark violet sugiilite, and accents of fresh blue turquoise.This is really two complete pieces in one: the major,award-winning artist has fabricated a signature dragonfly, but instead of adding a pin and/or pendant to the back, has soldered it to an equally arresting, 6-bar bracelet – a combination of tradition that became contemporary. Each element could easily stand on its own, to great effect; together, they form a truly exceptional whole. This is destined to become a treasured heirloom, if not donated to a grateful museum. It is a magnificent example of wearable art. The bracelet’s width tapers from 1 1/4″ at the ends to 1 7/8″ in the center.
