Fusing sleek modern elegance and rustic artisan crafting, this half round sterling silver cuff bracelet melds a perfect mirror finish and half round form with a “tree bark texture” along the apex of the curve produced by striking repeatedly in step increments using a riveting hammer. While the tree bark pattern is generally reserved for rustic jewelry, its inclusion on this cuff bracelet breaks with tradition and yields a rather unique unique take on a modern classic design.
As photographed, this cuff half round bracelet measures 6 inches long, .25 in diameter (6.5 mm width), about .2 inch thick (6 mm), and has a 1 inch gap, however you can order your bracelet with a custom fit along with inside engraving by simply entering your requests in the notes to seller box at check out. A mirror finish was chosen as an ironic twist or classy contradiction to the tree bark design, however you can also select and finish of your choosing ranging from an antique patina in the tree bark to emphasize the rustic appearance, a brushed finish for an industrial feel, or full hammered texture.
These half round cuff bracelets are formed by hand over a wooden mandrel using a nylon hammer and can be stamped on the inside with a custom message, words, names and initials. The ends are always hammered flat, slightly flared, and then heavily rounded on a fine grinding wheel to maximize comfort and a classy appearance. Given the relative thickness of this bracelet combined with the work hardening produced by shaping and hammering, the ability to bend and adjust the fit by hand may be somewhat limited, so we highly recommend ordering the bracelet to match your wrist size.
