Armlets have been worn throughout the ages and are perfect for those with a love of more unusual jewellery. Also known as arm cuffs or arm bracelets
Made with very thick 8 gauge wire, I start by hand shaping the piece and then begin the long process of carefully hammering the copper wire all the way round, so that it is evenly shaped. I pay particular attention to the ends, so that they splay outwards. Next I add texture to to design, meticulously working my way around the whole length. The hammering not only adds detail, but it also hardens the piece into shape.
Once the shaping of the Armlet is complete, I begin filing and sanding, so that the ends are perfectly smooth and comfortable when against the skin. Once it is finished, the cuff is tumbled, to clean and polish it and then hand polished, with an anti tarnish agent, to bring it to a high shine.
This armlet can be worn on the upper arm or forearm.
This armlet has an inside circumference of 9”. It measures 1 1/2” tall across the 3 complete wires.
This item comes gift wrapped.
