We were asked to be in an exhibition in London that benefits disadvantaged and homeless people by transforming decommissioned London bus panels. Yes, you read that right. This bracelet is made out of the side panel of a London double decker bus.
That is the RED we have been looking for!
The design is based on a 1933 map of the underground electrical grid. The map hasn't changed that radically in the past 80 years- I wouldn't use it for wayfinding, but the rough outline is the same. The bus panel was cut to size, sanded, engraved, bent, and painted in the channels with black enamel paint. The overall effect is quite painterly. Surprisingly effective!
