“Harmony In Chaos” Woven Sterling Silver Statement Cuff
This woven sterling silver cuff features a free-form organic design unique to each one, creating a dimensional layered look with lots of depth and visual interest. Accented with rose gold filled, yellow gold filled beads and faceted black tourmaline stones to add color contrast and light play, this bracelet looks incredible with other mixed metal bracelets or worn all on it’s own.
ABOUT THE DESIGN
This cuff was born out of my strong desire to think outside the box as an artist, and create something that challenged my normal tendencies of precisely repeatable designs and calculated outcomes. It is designed to be both structural and fluid in appearance, with a strong profile that has presence yet also has a flow and a dance within it. It ultimately represents the duality of strength and softness, and a beautiful harmonious balance that can be found in what may first appear to be random and chaotic.
This bracelet is made to order and each one is unique, yours will be created just for you. Each one is carefully hand woven, made to last, and surprisingly comfortable to wear.
*Please Note* This bracelet will be sized to a length of 6 inches which will comfortably fit a wrist measurement of 6 inches to 7 inches. If you need an alternate size, please message me before purchase and I’ll be happy to help!
-Cuff is free form woven by hand from over 8 feet of solid 16 gauge sterling silver wire.
-Each cuff features 11 accent beads woven onto the design with sterling silver wire.

-Each of these bracelets is entirely hand woven, and each one is unique with it’s own wire arrangement and accent bead placement as part of the organic free form nature of the design, so please expect slight variations of these features while remaining true to the design shown here.

-Cuff width (top to bottom) varies slightly per design but averages just under 1″ width.
-Cuff is strong, flexible, and very comfortable to wear.
ABOUT GOLD FILLED JEWELRY
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item’s total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler’s brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or “dipped” products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.
ABOUT BLACK TOURMALINE
Black tourmaline, also known as Schorl, is a member of the boron silicate tourmaline mineral group. Known as the “Master Protector” of stones, it is said to cleanse, purify, and transform negative energies as well as bring a sense of harmony and balance to it’s environment.
