The fear of and fascination with radioactivity was widespread during the Silver Age, and Daredevil was no different. When Matt Murdock is blinded by radioactive material, he is cared for by his father in their home in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Although Murdock has lost the use of his eyes, he can still metaphorically see as his remaining senses become superhuman. Refusing to live in fear, he avenges his father’s death at the hands of gangsters and continues to use his remarkable abilities to fight formidable foes. This bracelet was inspired by Murdock’s story, from the black chain maille resembling the urban grates and fire escapes common in Hell’s Kitchen to the red and black scheme reminiscent of Daredevil’s suit to accents resembling the eyes that at once prevent Murdock from seeing but allow him to accomplish more than he ever thought he could. Orli says, “Daredevil is very New York City. It’s where he grew up, and it’s where he became the man without fear. I wanted to seize on that as the basis for this design.”

As a bona fide comic book enthusiast, Orli celebrates the Marvel Comics multiverse, including the art and times of Stan Lee and his colleagues Jack Kirby, Len Wein, and Chris Claremont. Drawing inspiration from the flawed and conflicted heroes emerging and reemerging during the Silver and Bronze Ages, this collection capitalizes on the decisive colors, bold lines, and action-packed symbolic resonance of the genre.
Let’s get radioactive.
Cities tend to invite love-hate relationships. On the one hand, urban centers can be large, impersonal, overwhelming, rough, hectic, crowded, and cold. On the other hand, they can also be hubs of cultural activity and human accomplishment. Inherently opposite and exciting, the metropolises of the world both awe and confound, deconstructing preconceived notions of city life and constructing new ones simultaneously. Using durable, lightweight metals in a variety of shades juxtaposed with natural imagery and bright and organic color palettes, Deconstruct presents an interpretation of cityscapes and urban style.
