Chasing Perfection – The GOOD ART Model 10 Bracelet
GOOD ART's founder Josh Warner is nothing if not committed to perfection—just read our interview with him and you'll understand. Released just before the turn of the century, the Model 10 Bracelet was by all measures the best thing GOOD ART had ever made, taking over a year to perfect. It was the tenth bracelet the brand had made—hence the name—and in his own words, Josh describes it as the most perfect piece he'd ever made.
The problem is that Josh Warner is not one to rest, and after a few years he devised a better iteration on the Model 10—refining the design in ways he hadn't considered at the time. This cycle of perfection saw a third version eventually developed before production of the Model 10 was ceased whilst Josh "complained about counterfeits and figured out how to out-create the hijackers of my work".
After three years of development and almost 25 years since the original we have the fourth version of the Model 10 Bracelet. This time Josh found refinements around the clasp connection point and fine-tuned the build. The result is a piece of jewellery which is as much about it's aesthetic beauty as it is the tactile enjoyment of wearing it.
Made entirely by hand in GOOD ART's LA foundry, the Type 10 Bracelet is in many ways the ultimate expression of both brand's ethos and Josh Warner's life motto.
