Ever since my 2011 Trunk Show I have received dozens of requests to repeat the elaborate cuff bracelet I made. I finally found a few of the same high end hinged cuffs and am pleased to offer 3 different designs at this 2012 Show

The foundation for the bracelet as I mentioned is a sturdy, slightly oval shaped hinged cuff which stays very securely closed with pressure from the spring hinge on one side. The finish is a richly textured dark gunmetal grey. The oval shape stays in place without flipping on the wrist much better than a round cuff.

To this exquisite blank "canvas" I added a reclining handsculpted and carved polymer clay Chow nestled in an Oriental Rock Garden in the softly concave recess of the bracelet . The scene covers one entire side of the bracelet, while a swath of garden leaves also in Faux Coral is also on the back side


The FAUX CORAL I create from polymer clay which was painstakingly layered, thinly sliced and layered again and again to bring out the rich orange/red tones and translucent quality of real branch coral!!! You can see the real coral in the background of many of the photos for comparison.

After firing , the entire pendant was covered in black paint (always a "cringe" moment ) and baked on , followed by hours of sanding and buffing off the paint to reveal the exquisite details of the sculpting beneath. It looks for all the world like finely finished coral without the weight or high price tag of the real deal!!
