This botanical cuff is reminiscent of the floral studies done at the turn of last century. Delicately detailed, yet ruggedly durable, this unique cuff is a study in contrasts. The split and uneven edge is a visual counterpoint to the gorgeous floral motif. Hand forged sterling silver natural edge cuff with botanical print. This handmade cuff measures 5.5 inches in circumference, with a 1 inch opening.
Note from the Artist
I made this botanical cuff entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Botanical Cuff I am inspired by the circular nature of experience that give us continuity in our daily lives.
Every experience we have shapes our nature, giving us the strength to achieve our wildest dreams, to overcome unexpected setbacks, and to endure life’s toughest conflicts. Overcoming obstacles and achieving long held dreams, our life is a montage of defining moments conquered and memories claimed. Yet each revolution of the earth brings a recurrence of event, of time, of season, connecting us to all the generations that have come before.
I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the varying textures in Botanical Cuff is no exception. I always approach the creation of texture a bit like a mad scientist. The alchemy of fire, force, and metal is unpredictable and enthralling. Each hammer blow shapes the metal in a new direction. Each pass of a torch runs the risk of artistic implosion, where the metal could sink into a formless mass once more. The thrill of creation is echoed in the rush of artistic freedom with every moment, until the final texture is achieved.
I hope you enjoy Botanical Cuff.
