David Webb filled his mind with important historical design, turning to royal jewelry of the past in museum collections to stimulate his imagination. Here, Webb refined the bazuband, the traditional Indian upper arm bracelet, to its essential line and volume, expressed in hand-hammered gold and patterned diamonds as a pure sculptural presence.
