Gamin NYC Menilmont Cuff, Sterling Silver

450.00

The weighty, double-ridged shape of this bracelet is derived from North African head ornaments and anklets, fused together in the center of the piece, but separating slightly towards the ends. The internal script reads “Currit Rota / Urcens Exit,” Horace’s lines describing an artist who dreamed of creating beautiful amphorae but produced only pots. Hugo reversed the meaning of this phrase to describe the unlikely existence of le gamin, who seemed to be created from nothing. 

"Wait, currit rota, the life of Paris, that demon which creates the children of chance and the men of destiny, reversing the work of the Latin potter, makes of the jug a costly vase."

- "Currit Rota/ Urcens Exit" internal inscription 
- Sterling Silver 
- Finished by hand in Brooklyn 
- Custom "G" insignia
- A push or pull resizes this larger piece, making it more comfortable 
- Made in NYC
- Cleaning cloth displays original artwork, based on Afghan painted hunting cloth
