Go Fly a Kite Cuff
This whimsical cuff features a girl flying kite. What a perfect reminder of a childhood pastime!
Cold forged in 19 gauge copper sheet. To create the image cutout, a paper pattern is glued to the flat copper stock. After that, I carefully drill a hole and thread a hair fine saw blade through the hole to cut the image out from the inside. A little refinement with files and sanding wheels, and the cuff is ready to form. After shaping, all of the edges are sanded for comfort and then the piece is tumble polished for several hours.
This cuff is 1 1/4” wide by 6” around. It will fit the average wrist, and can be shaped slightly larger or smaller.
The cuff is sealed with 2 coats of museum grade Renaissance Wax to prevent tarnishing. The copper will mellow and darken with age, but can be brought back to a bright finish if desired. A care card with cleaning tips is included with your new cuff.
