“An Ancient Medicine” Cuff Bracelet. $575. SOLD.

Fanned smoke dances with the dust of the earth and the light of the sun to summon the echoes of an ancient medicine into our world anew. Wings honors the elemental forces and the oldest of ways with this new vintage-style cuff, crated through a texturizing technique called brazing. Solid sterling silver is cut and hammered freehand, then shaped with ends rounded gracefully and comfortably. The band is then stamped three times with two simple yet bold motifs: at center, a flowing pattern, usually used to evoke water but also tendrils of smoke and the arc of the light, flanked at either side by the image of a traditional fan wrought with an undercurrent of old Art Deco style. Then, sterling silver dust is introduced to the surface of the cuff by way of an open flame, melted evenly across its expanse to create the vintage look and raised, nubbly texture. Each stamp is then restruck, just slightly offset from the first to create the look and feel of an echo, a tangible medicine that appears, fully formed, through the lens and space of time immemorial. Cuff is 6″ long by 5/8″ across at the widest point (dimensions approximate).
