The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman

the glass bangle

I’ve often been asked,”Why Glass Bangle ?” and the answer has always been “Because it’s quintessentially Woman.” The delicate pieces of coloured glass with a hint of sensuality in their form, designed to slip and slide on ebony smooth skin, can never look good on a man’s wrist.

Glass bangles have a language of their own, be it the delicate tinkle when a young girl lifts a hand to sweep away the cascade of hair covering her face, or the bold clash when a woman slaps away unwanted advances, or the light murmur when she holds her beloved close. The bangles never lie. Facial expressions can be schooled to form a mask, but the anxious movements of the hands are a complete giveaway.

My Glass Bangle holds a mirror to my thoughts, those that hunger to escape from the confines of my mind and find a place in yours…….

    Yes, somehow when a woman becomes a mother she is automatically expected to become super queen… like you mentioned so beautifully… and it is exhilarating. Except when that one pair of socks is missing or the milk is not warm enough and suddenly you just lose your crown… sigh…
