Neptune Bangle Copper on Gold
Gold wire-wrapped bangle with copper highlights.
Inspired by Neptune, the Roman God of the sea, the shapes of the Neptune range reflect the unpredictable yet beautiful fluidity of the sea. This contemporary wrapped bangle uses tightly wrapped copper wire to set off the classic three points of the gold Black and Sigi bangle.

Each bangle is completely unique and is handmade by the Black and Sigi team in their studio in Leigh on Sea. Because all of the pieces are handmade, they may vary slightly from the image shown.
The wire wrap technique can be traced back to 1446 BC when the process involved using flattened sheets of metal which were cut into strips and rolled into tubes. These days, the team at Black and Sigi have built their designs on affordable, contemporary costume jewellery using 9ct gold plate and 10% sterling silver filled copper wires for the main part of their designs. Because there is a slightly thicker plating on the silver, the prices are the same for both gold and silver options.
We believe in accessibility but never compromising on quality, style and design. Our wire wrapping technique, passed down from generation to generation, allows us to be creative and innovative, and even though we are self-taught, it doesn’t stop us from constantly experimenting, allowing us to keep this traditional skill modern and alive.
Neptune is the Roman God of the sea, often depicted as an older man surrounded by sea creatures. As an inspiration we have taken this strong, feisty character and applied it to our design story.
