Ab aliqua (out of something) blood red enamel and copper cuff bracelet


ab aliqua (Latin for 'out of something') is, for me, a reminder that change and transformation is always possible. That we may have little enough to work with, but there is always hope.

This rustic cuff is hand forged from copper - the metal hammered and shaped into a slightly anticlastic shape and stamped (the letters very lightly pressed with white enamel) and then fired with blood red lead free enamel. The resulting surface is partially chipped away to reveal the bare copper underneath.

Purposefully rustic, purposefully distressed.

Around 6 1/2 inches (16 cm) to end, plus a one inch+ (3 cm) opening. 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) wide.

Wear & Care:
- To wear - turn your arm sideways and push/slide the opening over the narrow part of your wrist.
- The bare copper is sealed with microcrystalline wax but will darken over time.
- Clean with a damp soft sponge or cloth
- The cuff has a little give, but take care not to over extend.
- Enamel is a process which permanently fuses glass powder to metal using high temperatures. The resulting surface is pretty tough but it is glass so take care not to drop onto a hard surface.
