On the Tenth Day of Cuffmas…an Innie and an Outie

Remember – Today my Etsy shop will be closed while I am at the Delaware Art Museum for the Holiday House Tour

Another of two of my skinny cuffs, one copper beauty has a soft inner fold. They other a deeply textured outer fold.

They were textured, the lines folded, then the long folds down the middle before finally being formed into a bracelet. Then the copper was oxidized to bring out the wonderful textures and creases.

Either cuff can be yours for $90.00 plus shipping.

++New for 2011++

All cuffs purchased at either the Alternatives Holiday Craft Show (12/2) or the Delaware Art Museum Holiday House Tour (12/10) will also count towards Cuffmas! (My Etsy shop will be turned off during each of these events.)

There will be daily updates on my blog and via email, highlighting a different cuff each day. I am also providing free gift wrap and I’ll even ship it directly to the gift recipient, just please mention if you would like either of these options when ordering the cuff.

What are the 12 Days of Cuffmas, you ask? For each cuff on my Etsy site that is purchased, I will donate $10.00 to Heifer International. Our goal is to reach the $120.00 it takes to donate a goat.

Nine Days, Cuffmas is Almost Over!

If you buy this cuff, $25.00 will go directly to Heifer!

Eyeball Cuff ©2010 WTEK brass, nickel, Russian serpentine

Eyeballs. They’re seen as freaky, as protection, as a watcher, as a curse. Perhaps this eyeball (with it’s green “eye”) will ward off jealousy. Who knows? I know that I’m both attracted to and repulsed by them. Either way they fascinate me.

This piece was started just after my Eyeball necklace, and was supposed to end up as another necklace. It had other plans. Eventually it convinced me that I should turn it into a bracelet and it was right – it is better this way.

The stone is Russian serpentine and the cuff and setting are made from textured brass. The “eyeball” portion is made of fold formed nickel that has a torch patina. It measures 2″ x 2 1/2″ x 1 5/8″ and can watch you for $395.00 plus shipping.

The Eighth Day of Cuffmas Brings… Silver Angles

Angled Silver Fold Formed Cuff ©2011 WTEK

You read that right – angles not angels. And really it’s just one big angle. I love the way it fits and it looks different depending on which arm it graces.

Lately I’ve been using outlined folds in my cuffs. It makes them simpler, more minimalist, I think. This particular cuff has a background texture that was hammered in and it was folded on an angled piece of silver, so one end is wider than the other. The silver was then oxidized to bring out all the fabulous textures.

This sterling cuff measures 2″ x 2.25″ x 1.75″ (at the widest part) and it can grace your arm for $175.00 plus shipping.
