Modern, Hinged, Hollow-Formed Sculptural Bracelets In Sterling Silver

I fabricate my sculptural, hollow-formed bracelets out of sterling silver sheet. I carefully cut and forge each wall to fit together, soldering them in place, one at a time. This bracelet contains more than 30 individual pieces. There is an amazing amount of finish work involved, removing overlapping edges, filing and sanding everything smooth. I use very heavy-walled silver tubing and a thick pin to construct a durable hinge that will hold up well through the years. The clasp mechanism is deceptively simple and very secure. To close it, you simple squeeze it shut around your wrist. There is an audible snap as the notched tab of the clasp clicks into place. The clasp operates by treating the bracelet as a large spring. To release it, simply torque the bracelet a bit, pushing the two sides of the bracelet against each other, until the notch disengages. The hinge can then be pulled open. It is an easy task to accomplish with one hand.

It is 1 1/2" wide and I can make it in any size. To get a great fit, cut a 1 1/2 inch wide piece of paper or paperboard. Wrap it around you wrist Find a nice fit, and make and mark the point where the paper overlaps. Measure the length, and forward it on to me.

Typically, I can complete a custom order within two weeks. However, these bracelets are the most time intensive pieces that I make and will require up to four weeks lead time.
