Heavy Silver Cuff Bracelet
Treasure has extraordinary energy, and this cuff bracelet is no exception with its fluid shape. Inspired by my synaesthetic response to the crackled and chaotic guitar playing of Matt Bellamy from Muse. I hand forged this cuff bracelet from one piece of silver, and as a result, it is flowing, chaotic and crackled like the guitar playing that inspired it.
A sculptural and close-fitting cuff bracelet, consequently it will fit your wrist comfortably and snugly. Put it on by slotting the gap over the narrow part of your wrist and turning your wrist into the bracelet. I never make the same thing twice so as a result, this cuff bracelet is a one-off piece. It is from my ongoing series of unique hand-sculpted jewellery.
Music As Inspiration
I have synaesthesia which is a neurological trait where my senses cross meaning my sight is triggered when I listen to music. Therefore I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I hear music. This cuff bracelet is inspired by what I see when I listen to music. As a result, the twisted shapes in this silver cuff bracelet are little snippets of electric guitar music made tangible by my synaesthesia.
To me, electric guitar looks like lightning made of mercury. Hence this large silver cuff curls and twists in response to crackled and distorted electric guitar playing.

I used recycled sterling silver from old and broken silverware and cutlery to make this heavy silver cuff bracelet. Consequently, this eliminates the need for newly mined silver in my work. I melted a piece of old silverware down. Then I hand forged the resulting ingot of molten silver into this satisfyingly weighty cuff.
Who is this cuff bracelet for?
This heavy silver cuff bracelet is for a woman who wants to be creative with her style. An adventurous heart who wants to show her individuality with the jewellery she wears. An open, honest, creative and resourceful woman with a curiosity that leads her forwards in her endeavours.
