I updated/redesigned a simple reticulated, fused and oxidized rectangle necklace to create this ornate, heavy-gauge cuff. The cuffs oval diameter is 2.5″. Its hammered band is fused to the underside of the rectangle and all pieces on top were fused and melted spontaneously but with some purpose and control of the torch. The challenge was to not use any solder.
It almost felt as though I was painting with the torch. I enjoyed this immensely–became lost in the process. This may be my very favorite piece of all my fabrications.
