This is probably my favourite cuff of all I made so far. It is constructed on the most gorgeous hand painted and distressed Italian leather. I used a series of unique components: a raku element-the close up photo (read about raku technique below), a quote ceramic bracelet link, lace, antique copper cherub stamping and Czech glass spike beads. It was Pulitzer Prize winning historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich who originally said " Well behaved women seldom make history" in an 1976 article. I just love the craftsmanship on this rusty-patina component!
Raku is an old Japanese pottery technique where the clay piece is removed suddenly from the hot kiln causing it to cool rapidly. The firing is done in a chamber where combustible materials like straw are lit causing the glazes to turn into surprising and delightful finishes. The finishes are literally "painted" with fire. How fascinating!
This is a detailed high quality piece which will get you many many compliments. Show you bold side!

If I write "non-toxic" or "lead-free" is because the supplier mentioned it in their description. I do not take responsibility for their information.

|Care & Maintenance||
Do not let perfume or cosmetics come in direct contact with the beads and components. While I choose my material carefully and I try to provide the best quality, if not properly taken care of, all beads will change or lose colour or shine in time if exposed to chemicals.
Handle the fragile components with care especially the clasp area. Be gentle! Because I use lots of fragile components made of clay or porcelain, I advise to keep the jewellery in their own boxes out of harm's way. I do consider repairs, but subject to certain conditions.
