Fabricated three dimensional sterling silver bracelet by Gina Pankowski; of interlocking geometric shapes; bracelet moves, rustles, and catches light when worn; titled "Lattis #12" after "Bravias Lattis, a mathemetician who created a formula for counting the points in crystalline structures" (see Instruments of Imagination, The Jewelry of Gina Pankowski,  Metalsmith Magazine, Fall, 2002) ; inside diameter about 2-1/2" (moves to about 3" so it's easy to put on); approximately 1-1/2" wide; excellent condition.

Gina's career in contemporary jewelry was decided when she wandered into the metal arts studio at the University of Washington, and the classroom of Mary Lee Hu. Hu has been, and still is, a major influence in contemporary art jewelry, and was the ideal instructor for Gina given their mutual interest in structure and pattern. Since graduating in 1993, Gina has gone on to show her jewelry in galleries around the country and the world, and her work has been included in major exhibitions at prestigious institutions including the American Craft Museum in New York, and the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of Art, Smithsonian Institution, and the Samuel Dorsky Museum in New Paltz, New York.
