Textured Cuff Bracelet - Anticlastic Sterling Cuff - Antique Flower Pattern Cuff
A simple, lightly textured sterling cuff bracelet created using the anticlastic raising technique which is concave through the center with softly flared edges. This silver cuff bracelet is made of heavy gauge sterling sheet which is hand wrought and finished to a mirror polish but would show the light texturing pattern if you prefer to oxidize. The bracelet is formed as a soft oval to conform to the shape of your wrist. Classic in every way, this sterling cuff will be one you love and wear often. I have rounded the ends of the cuff and filed all edges for a smooth rounded look. The floral pattern has an antique look and would be lovely with an oxidized finish also.
If you wish this cuff to be oxidized (no additional charge), just use the drop down menu to select the oxidized finish! I have pictured the cuff 2 ways, the first 2 photos show a low relief floral pattern the last photos show a low relief sea fan pattern. This size cuff can also be created with plain silver, no rolling mill texture pattern added. Please leave a message in notes to seller if you have a preference.

This cuff is entirely hand wrought by me made with a technique called anticlastic raising. This is not done with a hydraulic press so each one is exactly the same. This hand forging technique is done using an anticlastic steel stake, I hammer so the sterling forms to the shape of the stake. Starting with a flat piece of sheet, this is no easy task- the metal wants to straighten out and I want it to curve into a cuff. I then hand planish on the same stake, which means I hammer very lightly to smooth out all the hammer marks and any wrinkles from where the metal didn't quite want to form to the stake. Finally I polish to a mirror shine. All this makes for a nice springy metal which will hold it's shape well no matter how many times you take it off and put it on!
Your cuff will come boxed appropriately for gift giving. I include an organza drawstring storage pouch, a sunshine polishing cloth square, jewelry care instructions and a plastic bag for storage to help retard tarnish.
