Limited Over Bangles

A special edition of 100 bangles in 316 stainless steel and bronze, marks the tenth anniversary of Simone LeAmon’s acclaimed Bowling Arm bangles.

A special edition of 100 bangles in 316 stainless steel and bronze, Limited Over marks the tenth anniversary of Simone LeAmon’s acclaimed Bowling Arm bangles, which repurpose the leather waste from Australian made cricket balls. Known for initiating creative dialogues with local manufacturers, Simone has salvaged the leather waste from cricket ball manufacturers around Australia since 1999. Transforming the waste into bangles through clever packaging and storytelling.

Limited Over is the follow-up project to the now iconic red, white and yellow leather Bowling Arm bangles. Available in three sizes and two variations Grubber and Popper the Limited Over bangles are lost-wax castings of leather cricket ball waste.

Commemorating the manufacture of the ‘two-piece cricket ball’ for which the Australian manufacturing was once renowned, Limited Over is a reminder of how place and manufacturing traditions can embed industrial production with cultural identity. The two-piece, hand stitched leather cricket ball is recognised globally as being Australian because of the tooling, machinery and processes used to manufacture the ball.

Limited Over is a design collectible made to wear.
