Ivaan Kotulsky left the planet on 6 December 2008, but so much of him remains here on earth - his art, his humour, his photographs, his huge personality, his generous heart, his optimistic spirit, his boundless love, together with our memories of him - that this blog is a virtual Museum of Ivaan.

30 PIECES OF SILVER: Part 13
Ivaan originally made the Shipwreck bracelet in gold, in about 2000, for someone who wanted to have her life's collection of gold and diamonds made into one jawdropping cuff bracelet. It's a spectacularly hard bracelet to make in wax, because there is unlimited opportunity for disaster to occur, due to the complexity of the design. But even making a wax is easier than trying to photograph this bracelet. One day I'll try and take a better photo, and replace this one. It really does look like some barnacle-encrusted piece of metal that was found on the ocean floor. Here it is in silver, and I'll also post a photo of the gold and diamond version. Eat your heart out.
