Today is the official start of the 12 Days of Cuffmas and I have a beautiful cuff to share with you. I call this piece Scales because it reminds me of dragon skin. First, I textured the sheet of silver using my giant sledge hammer. Then I folded it and used a technique called “chasing over air” where I used a domed hammer to create the fabulous indentations in the bracelet. I used a raising hammer to bring a little more texture into the cuff and then formed it into a cuff shape.
This cuff measures 2″ x 2.5″ x 1.75″ and is oxidized with liver of sulfur. Remember, for each cuff purchased through my online Etsy shop, $10.00 will be donated to Heifer International and you can have free gift wrap!
