Anybody who knows me knows they can hear me coming before they see me. I have always worn multiple hallow silver bangles (most purchased in Jaipur years ago) that "CLANK" ...John calls them the "Josie Alarm". Recently I started experimenting with taking my mishima textile patterns and making ceramic bangles. I wasn't sure they would be sturdy enough to withstand wear but to my happy amazement they work perfectly. My daughter Susannah has been wearing a proto-type while serving yummy lunches at this great Berkeley restaurant. Instead of my usual "CLANK" they make a really pretty "PING" when more than one is worn. You can check them out here in my etsy shop.
