This stone was cut and polished in my lapidary studio from one of my most prized slabs of Crazy Lace Agate. This stone is a dream to cut, different colors and bandings becoming exposed as you polish and shape through the layers of the rough stone. I have a hard time parting with any single piece of crazy lace and this one in particular has been sitting on my bench for several months now while I debated keeping it for myself :)
Instead, I'm offering her up to the world! A beautiful pastel and intricately banded agate, set in a fine silver bezel onto oxidized sterling silver sheet. The thick-gauge cuff band is carefully hand-stamped in an original pattern of mine and can be worn stone side up or stamp side up. I've taped the end of the cuff band down for a super comfortable fit.
The cuff band measures 5.5 inches long with a one inch gap meaning this would fit a six inch wrist best but could be adjusted up or down slightly if you are close to this size.
Each piece of jewelry I make is made entirely by me in my home studio in Salt Lake City, Utah. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques meaning I cut, saw, solder, file, form + polish everything by hand (and torch!) While I may continuously bring certain styles back no two stones are ever identical so your piece is truly one-of-a-kind and meant for you.
To maintain the longevity of your cuff there is a little bit of a trick to putting these on - I hold the cuff opening to the side of my wrist and carefully scoop the cuff around my wrist. You can initially adjust the cuff to your wrist when you first try it on so it's contoured to your specific wrist but try to avoid doing this a lot, this strains the metal and over time constant strain like this can cause the cuff band to form a fracture and snap in half. I make these cuffs with a heavy-gauge metal so with proper care they will last you forever!
