Heptagon (7-sided) bangle handmade from laminated book pages studded with pearls and gold balls. A stack of pages from Nicholas Christopher’s novel “A Trip to the Stars” (German translation) was transformed into a bangle as a reminiscence of this book.“We had voyaged far into space and now we were returning. Before leaving the solar system, we orbited the moon and several planets – skating along Saturn’s rings, probing Jupiter’s red spot, and skimming the icy mountain ranges of Uranus. We trailed a comet and threaded a swarm of meteors. And after Pluto, we were among the stars: glittering clusters, bracelets, and crescents that swirled around us.” (Excerpt from page 1 – A Trip to the Stars).The base material of this bangle is Christine’s special paper laminate. The book pages were laminated page on page, hardened, carved and sanded, then mounted to a heptagonal shape. Sanded again, multisealed and smoothly polished to a soft gloss, the surface showing a subtle text pattern, it matches perfectly with the shiny pearls and the glowing gold balls, which are embedded into gold-plated pits. Each of the seven surfaces is studded with four Akoya pearls and three 8k gold balls. All elements are pinned to keep them in place.
