Jakob Bengel's jewelry has been on the mind as of late.

Though better known for his experimental jewelry, Bengel began his career in the early 1900's as a watch chain maker and oddly enough, a locksmith. Thus, both of these things heavily influenced the way he thought about jewelry construction, and shaped his overall aesthetic.

I am really drawn to a specific group of his designs-- which is a series of watchband inspired hinged necklaces and bracelets, most enameled in really cool ways.

Though it sort of reminds me of the whole friendship bracelet craze that was going on for a while, these pieces are a bit refreshing! Would be cool to see it re-interpreted by someone else...
