A mesmerizing Moroccan zillij geometric design is laser cut into plexi / perspex and transformed into a cuff. Traditional, modern, and futuristic are all rolled into one standout statement piece that balances stunning latticework with subtle transparency.
I reproduced this design by computer, inspired by geometric designs ubiquitous in Islamic art and architecture around the world, particularly the living artisanal tradition of zellij tilework in Morocco. Starting from one center point, the design grows mathematically into circles, squares, and complex stars that interconnect and extend to infinite, representing the unity and interconnectedness of all existence. While these designs are rooted in age-old tradition, the message speaks of universality and transcendence, and the bold, graphic lines are both modern and timeless.
This listing is for 1 cuff. Please allow about 2-3 weeks to ship. Cuff width is 2". Inner diameter is 2 1/8", circumference is 7 1/2" and the opening is 1 1/4" with the very slight ability to flex in order to slide around a slightly wider wrist. This material cannot be bent or reshaped. The cuff closes with an optional silver chain and lobster clasp that can be removed if desired.
If you are unsure about the cuff fitting your wrist, measure your wrist by following the demonstration in the last photo and message me with your measurements. I can adjust the size and shape of the cuff if needed. After this adjustment is made, the cuff *cannot* be readjusted or reshaped at all. In order to better secure the cuff, I made a vinyl strap that closes with a snap. This can be used or removed as you wish.
This acrylic material is perfectly suitable for everyday wear (assuming you don't work in construction!), but can break if it collides with something hard or is bent too far, so handle with care. The cuff will come secured in a beautiful, handmade gift box.
