Daniel Ramos: Bracelet + Lights = Stellar Display

When confronted with the problem to present his bracelets in an innovative way at the London Jewellery Week, German silversmith Daniel Ramos had a truly enlightened idea. What he came up with is as ingenious as it is practical: he decided to create displays for his bracelets that not only show off the wonderful array of colors beautifully, the display also doubles as an eye-catching lamp! 

"I have always been fascinated by the sky, the universe and the possibility of other lifeforms in outer space. I love "retro futurism" from the early 60s- and 70s and before, particularly paintings through which people tried to express their view of the future with the technical knowledge from that time. This is the inspiration behind my objects."

Daniel studied Silversmithing at the prestigious Staatliche Zeichenakademie in Hanau, Germany and currently teaches Digital Media (CAD, Rapid Prototyping) at the Academy for Fine Arts in Nuremberg. His silicone bracelets are created in a wide array of colors and color combinations. The bracelets simply clip into an empty display spot or, if that is preferred, the spots can be left empty to create individual patterns of light and shade.

Each display is handmade, tailored to the customer's wishes and runs on high quality light emitting diodes (LED) which only uses a minimum of electricity.

Because the displays are made of silicone, the display color itself can be changed via remote control at a moment's notice, custom tailoring the lighting to the mood.

Since being on the market, Daniel has noticed a huge interest in the display itself - and for some customers, that seems to be the priority. The snap on-off bracelets are just an additional added benefit to a lamp they really like!

Daniel has a patent on the BrazeLights and is currently looking for distributors in the US.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
