Trends in jewellery design – body jewellery
Continuing her blog post series into trends and innovations in jewellery design, LJS tutor Anna Campbell turns her attention to body jewellery
Worn quite regularly by Rihanna, these are chains that are worn in some way over the torso. She tends to wear them over bare skin, a little more difficult in a British climate. However, they can also be worn over clothing.
This type of jewellery has a number of names. It is known as a finger bracelet, slave bracelet and ring to wrist cuff (and no doubt many other names). It tends to loop around at least one finger and the wrist.
