Brutalist cuff bracelet | solid sand cast silver pewter cuff, rustic organic texture

Shipping to United States: Free
Sorry, this item has sold.

An organically textured cuff bracelet, sand cast in lead and nickel free silver pewter.

Dimensions:
Around 7 inches (18) cm to end plus 1 1 /4 inches (3 cm) opening at the back.
Inner Diameter is a little over 2 1/2 inches (7 cm) measured at the widest point (the cuff is slightly oval)

The cuff is nice and solid but you can gently but firmly, squeeze the ends together to slightly reduce the width of the opening at the back for a narrower wrist.

I do not use commercial molds but, rather I create my own, adding texture and detailing to the sand mold (which can only be used once) before casting, so each piece is unique.

Care:
Pewter is a relatively soft metal that has been used for jewelry and adornments dating back to Ancient Romans, Egyptians and Celts. It is darker and less shiny than silver, which makes it perfect for my pieces which are purposefully organic or rustic. Pewter does not tarnish like silver but will dull over time (buff lightly with polishing cloth or fine steel wool to bring up the shine. I find wearing my pewter adds to its beauty as the oils from the skin act like a natural polish). An occasional coat of wax or oil polish will preserve the patina. As pewter is a 'soft' metal it will mark more readily (although my pieces are designed to be robust and the odd mark will only add to my aesthetic).

I oxidize my pieces with a dark patina, which brings out the textures, and seal with a natural wax polish (a small amount of the black patina may, when first worn, transfer to your skin; this is quite harmless and easily removed with water).

My work is purposefully rustic and raw. I use salvaged elements and metals which I manipulate and play with to add texture and dimension; bold pieces; big stones and chunky chains. Beautifully broken jewelry for the free of spirit and wild at heart.

Please note that shipping estimates are not guaranteed and rural or regional areas may take a bit longer.

Domestic items are shipped via 'Express Post'

All my items are shipped with tracking and please feel free to send me a convo if you have any questions or concerns.

Do you wrap your items?

All my items are securely packaged and wrapped in new and clean recycled packaging.

I try to keep my environmental footprint as light as possible so I use ephemera (vintage sewing pattern tissue, old unwanted books and Atlases) in my wrapping.

Can I return my purchase for a refund?

Absolutely. What's the point of jewelry you aren't going to wear! Shopping online is convenient, but sometimes you need to see a thing up-close and and in-person to know how you really feel about it. If you'd like to return your item, just let me know within 14 days of delivery (please note: purchasers are responsible for return postage costs but I will issue a refund upon proof of postage, so you don't have to wait).

What's your aesthetic and your pricing philsophy?

My work is purposefully raw. I use natural stones, crystals and salvaged materials, as these hold more meaning than shiny new things. My aesthetic celebrates the signposts; stitches, tool marks, natural texture and patina - these tell the story of a pieces' journey with me. I love that one of my customers described my work as 'beautifully broken' because there is great beauty in what some consider to be imperfection.

Pricing is one of the hardest things for an artist. I try to keep my prices accessible, whilst reflecting the time and materials that have gone into creating. When you purchase one of my pieces you are getting something that is unique and which has taken many hours to create.

Custom and personalized orders

My process is very organic and personal so, the short answer is no, I don't generally take custom orders. However, please feel free to reach out to me if you have something in mind. I've worked with several of my regular customers to create a piece that uses a material or object that holds a special meaning for them.

Can I reserve an item? Do you offer lay-away?

I am happy to reserve items for up to seven days for returning customers (ie. people who have purchased from me before), but please note that by reserving an item you are committing to purchase that item.

I can also set up layaway (payment via instalments) for new customers. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this option.
