Merging the splendor of a butterfly garden in full bloom with unique handmade artisan appeal, this cuff bracelet exemplifies the limitless possibilities of a fine jewelry saw and an acetylene torch in producing one of kind wedding, cocktail, and statement jewelry. Each component including the butterfly, leaves, and flowers were sawed entirely by hand from a 20 gauge flat sheet of sterling silver and joined to a handmade 18 gauge sterling silver cuff that was shaped by hammering the flat metal band over a wooden bracelet mandrel. The flowers and butterflies were dapped and domed on steel block to give a full three dimensional experience to the garden, while also maximizing the benefits of curved shapes to reflect natural light into highlights and shadows. After removing the fire scale, rounding the end tabs, and filing the edges, a patina was applied to the chased lines in the butterfly wings, leaf veins, and hammered dimples.
While shown here in a 6.5 inch width to fit a medium sized wrist, this special butterfly bracelet should be ordered with a personalized fit by letting me know your wrist or bracelet size. When you order your bracelet with a personalized fit, you will also have the opportunity to customize the individual elements of the bracelet such as metal options, substituting your own designs, or rearranging the components to suite individual tastes. The flowers and butterflies can be made from bronze, copper, or gold and even topped off with personalized gemstones to add some color to the design. Just remember, these bracelets are handmade, so no two will be exactly alike.
