Any number of people, in the privacy of their own minds, may have imagined themselves at one time or another popping a wheelie in a flare of fire. Obviously, this is not something that you are encouraged to attempt, and with the Flare supplying the flare, you won’t have to. Orli says, “I was careful to apply a highly texturized finish while still preserving a two-tone element to the metal that adds movement and realism to the fire motif.”

Like many of us, Orli has always harbored a fascination with motorcycles. The experience of riding a motorcycle has captured the popular imagination for decades. It encompasses the freedom of movement on the open road and the ability to take in the sights and smells of nature at your own pace. The lone rider on a vast expanse of highway, contemplating the natural world and feeling the profound openness of immense space, is an intriguing and inspiring image. As biker jargon, ironside refers to the parts and detailing comprising the top half of a motorcycle. Orli’s Ironside takes iconic features of motorcycle style, including spikes, chains, and suedes, and presents an elegant collection of chopper-inspired work drawing its aesthetic from the ostentatious costume jewelry of the Eighties, when bigger was always better.
