This green bangle bracelet is a unique and striking piece of jewelry that is sure to catch the eye. The centerpiece of the bracelet is a carousel of stamps, each one featuring a mountie in red serge riding a horse. The stamps are carefully placed to create a dynamic and engaging display that draws the viewer in.

What sets this bracelet apart is its inspiration from historical jewelry values that are intentionally questioned and turned on their axis. The use of postage stamps rather than traditional gemstones as the central focus of the piece is both innovative and thought-provoking. The series, titled "Cancelled Icons," began in 1983 and continues to this day, exploring themes of currency and material use as they relate to aesthetic value, religion, geography, and politics.

The green bangle itself is crafted from high-quality materials and has a smooth and comfortable feel against the skin. The vibrant green color is a nod to nature and the environment, tying in with the theme of the piece's questioning of traditional jewelry values. The carousel of stamps is carefully mounted on the bracelet, allowing for easy rotation and display.

This bracelet is a one-of-a-kind piece that is both visually stunning and conceptually intriguing. Its use of stamps as a central focus and exploration of themes related to currency and material use make it a standout piece in the world of contemporary jewelry design.
