Stamped one letter at time in the shape of a rolling wave, this sterling silver anticlastic cuff bracelet features an inspirational quote from Louisa May Alcott, “far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”
The cuff bracelet was sawed by hand with a jewelry saw as a flat 1.5 inch wide band from 18 gauge sterling silver and pressed into hard neoprene with a steel die at .25 inch intervals to create the anticlastic shape, while forming the bracelet by pressing upward with my hands. For a classy comfortable fit, the end tabs were highly rounded and edges filed smooth by hand. A black patina was used to darken the lettering in the Louisa May Alcott quote for increased contrast and legibility against the radiant mirror finish.
Measuring 6 inches long by 1.5 inches wide and weighing more than 2 troy ounces, the cuff bracelet will fit a medium sized wrist and can be ordered with a personalized fit in any size by noting your wrist circumference or bracelet size in the check out notes. This bracelet can also be customized with your own quotes, text, or sayings of equal length by entering your requests in the check out notes. The Alcott quote is approximately 160 characters or 33 words.
It is also possible to stamp a much longer quote or create a custom bracelet in any metal with even the most complicated designs, however I ask that you please contact me first to discuss designs. Custom orders and requests are always welcome. Please don’t hesitate to contact us or call
any time with questions and special requests. Thanks.. Nici
