This beautiful ornamental bowl in gold and black was hand-forged from a drum cymbal by emerging Nelson goldsmith, Benjamin Clark.

Benjamin spent seven years refining his art with Jens Hansen Gold & Silversmiths (illustrious makers of the Movie Ring for the Peter Jackson trilogy) before going on to establish his own jewellery company, Benjamin Black.

These stunning works combine a love of music with a curiosity for the repurposing of objects into other functional items. The cymbal bowl is available at interiors37.co.nz
