18ct Yellow Gold
ROCK ‘N’ ROLL BRACELET
The rock n’ roll ‘spur motif, now synonymous with Hannah’s unique design language, is seen here transformed into a sculptural chain link in solid 18 carat yellow gold.
Like all Hannah Martin pieces, this bracelet has a unique clasp. Once the clasp is twisted into place it becomes almost invisible on the piece.
The combination of the clean, knife-edge lines and the soft curvaceous form of each link makes this a truly unique collector’s piece.

When I set out to create a collection that gloried in the world of rock and roll and all it’s excess, I knew there would have to be chains involved. I could picture the oversized, heavy gold chains layered up on the slightly unkempt wrists of the boys who were the stars of my story.
This collection, ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll’ was born out of my exploration of masculinity, among other things. I was fascinated by the idea of jewellery for men, that girlfriend’s would steal. About where the borders of masculinity lay, and what forms it took. Imagining a world of youth, beauty, excess and raw emotion I immersed myself in the work of photographers such as Bruce Weber, Larry Clark and Hedi Slimane, endlessly reading the works of Hunter S Thomson, J.K Huysmans and Henry Miller. I wanted to create a collection that paid homage to the likes of Brian Jones and Ian Curtis – who lived life at the edge of passion and destruction.
This bracelet took its form from the melting pot of all of the above. I originally hand carved the shape as I felt it needed a certain voluptuousness, combined with the knife-edge sharpness. The clasp, which twists on and off, developed as I tried to find a way to make it as hidden as possible. I didn't want anything to take away from the lines of the sculptural forms.
The weight of the gold was important in this piece (as it is in many of my pieces) – I wanted you to be able to really feel that you were wearing it. It is satisfying on the wrist, with the strength and power to reflect the glory of its inspirations.
