Layered Bangles Cuff - Handmade in my Texas studio - ♀ ♂
100% made from wire and copper sheet in my studio

★NOTE★This item is MADE TO ORDER and requires 2 weeks for production by hand in my studio. Please keep this in mind when ordering. I do have a variety of "Ready to Ship" items to choose from that you can see here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jamiespinello?section_id=14624658
All other items in my shop require production time before shipment.

Designed for the inner gypsy, the traveler/explorer, the eccentric.
For this cuff, I have created a multi-bangle effect, yet the "bangles" are all spaced and adhered to rods so that they stay in place and together. I have always loved the look of multiple bangles worn on the arm, but I always lose them and am not fond of the constant up and down clanking that occurs all day long while wearing them, hence my bangle copper cuff design was born.


∆∆∆This particular design is inspired by gypsies and vagabonds that travel the world playing music, selling wears or dancing. I have read one tradition of wearing bangles (churi) that is an indian one, where it is a symbol of matrimony. The traditional churi bangles are made of glass and Indian women will try to wear as many small glass bangles as possible at her wedding and the honeymoon will end when the last bangle breaks. I have seen images of belly dancers wearing bangles as well, and on further research found that many would wear bangles because of the ability to shake the wrists to create a jingling sound while dancing. I love that there is a strong tradition of women wearing bangles and I think they look beautiful on everyone.

sizing: They usually come out to between 3-3.5 " long and are 2.5" wide. I ask for wrist measurements (circumference) that you can find by wrapping a string around your wrist, to make sure to make a custom cuff that fits well. The average size that I make which generally fits universally is from 5.5-7" in circumference. If you need a different size you MUST tell me during checkout please. I make each by hand from scratch and am more than happy to make one that is a perfect fit for you.

Frequently asked questions about JamieSpinello

MADE TO ORDER ITEMS: Most of my items require approximately 2-3 weeks for production by hand before shipment and are made to order. Production requirements for my pieces vary from design to design, because of different processes involved. The estimated time required before shipment can be found under the "shipping & polices" tab and on the invoice after purchase.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS:
If an item states it is "READY TO SHIP", it will be shipped in 1-3 business days.

MULTIPLE ITEMS IN ORDER: Orders containing multiple items may take longer than the estimate. I encourage customers to contact me with questions if they are hoping to meet a deadline for gift giving or receipt. Please contact me with any concerns!
For all of my items it is a good idea to avoid harsh cleaning chemicals and or extended periods of submersion in water. Most metals oxidize and react to being exposed to acids in household cleaners, shampoos, and even face wash. To prolong the life of your jewelry, I suggest that you keep your pieces in a dry place (hanging up if a necklace) and to avoid over exposure to water and chemicals.
All of my work ships from my studio in Austin, Tx.
I use a wide array of processes for creating my work. All of my pieces are made in my studio. I forge, solder, fabricate, cast, carve, etch, and weld everything myself in my studio in Austin, Tx. I do not outsource, when you buy from me, you buy my original real hand made work made in my studio.
I do accept custom requests and personalized orders. Please shoot me a message first so we can get started. I am not able to accept all custom requests at all times, so please contact me first to find out my availability. Thank you.
