Wide Handcrafted Hammered Silver Cuff Bracelets

  • April 14, 2014 2:26 PM




I was wondering what my next project would be. My eyes watched the sunny landscape outside my window, and suddenly I was happy and creative, and the idea of hammering Silver cuff bracelets entered my mind. I cried “WOW” and could not wait until I sat at my work table and began to hammer wide strips of silver to the shapes I had in my mind.Like John Lennon, ( hope he will forgive the comparison, up there, where he is now)  I did not believe in fashion, I did not believe in “will it sell?”, I did not believe in “the materials are too expensive these days”. I have just believed in me! (high time!)This is the first one:

When I say “Hammered” I mean – by using the Repoussee technique – hammering the Silver in a bowl of pitch. As I love rounded shapes the inspiration was of waves of flower petals.

The second Cuff Bracelet is a very long snake with a twirl in the middle of his body which is on one end, and his head and tail, almost meet, on the other.
