Tana Acton Movable Mobius Cuffs with Kinetic Beads
Each piece of fine art jewelry by Tana Acton is created from a single "thread" of precious metal, either sterling silver, 12k gold-filled, or copper.
Acton utilizes textile techniques in metal, wrapping Sterling Silver or 14K Gold-Filled wire over a sculptural framework, sometimes incorporating gemstone beads or pearls in her bracelets and rings.
The filament is wrapped precisely and tautly on its frame structure or "loom" in a classic textile technique, translated in metal. The pieces may or may not have a kinetic element captured in the structure or riding on the crossing wires. The fabric created has a faceted effect from the light finding each individual crossing, yet leaving space and air to breathe through each piece.
