L. Brent Kington believes in exploring every possible way of representing a different form, and often translates his sculptural compositions into jewelry. Here, the silver was forged, twisted, and filed to create the illusion of movement. The animated look and fluid contours of Bracelet are typical of Kingtonā€™s work, some of which actually moves.
