Custom Brand Cuff -- Sterling & Copper
I've always wanted my own cattle brand, but since I don't have one, I'll settle for making jewelry with yours! ***The listing photos show a variety of sets I've made but this listing is for a single Western Floral pattern cuff with copper and sterling silver brand medallion.***
I make the brand out of tiny little pieces of sterling silver wire or sheet, solder them to a copper base, then solder it to a floral patterned cuff, reminiscent of tooled leather.
Each oval-shaped cuff measures about 2 1/2" by 1 7/8" and should fit a range of wrist sizes. The floral bangle is just over 1/8" (4mm) wide, while the bead bangles are just over 1/16" wide. Together, the set is right at 3/8" wide. I've oxidized them then buffed the high points to bring out the details.
After purchasing the listing, I will email you requesting a photo or file of your brand. I'll then design the medallion based on your brand and make your bracelet! If you have any questions about the bracelets or custom jewelry process, please don't hesitate to ask.
***To ensure the longevity of your cuff bracelets, make sure you put them on correctly. The cuff can be gently (and slightly) reshaped, but repeated bending of the metal will cause it to become brittle and eventually break. Hold the cuff in the hand opposite the wrist on which you want to wear it, with the opening facing out. Push one end of the cuff into the soft spot inside your arm, an inch or so below your wrist. Lastly, "roll" the cuff around the back side of your wrist and into place. I have seen a lot of people struggle to put on a cuff bracelet, but if you do it like this, you should be able to do it easily!***
Each of my pieces is signed, dated, and marked "925" for sterling silver as space allows. The last photo shows an example of my packaging (earrings not included, of course).
