Since I thoroughly enjoy seeing how things are made, I thought I would share how I make a spaces cuff bracelet. Thankfully, it is not as complicated as the boat I watched them build on tv.
A paper pattern is taped to the argentium sterling silver sheet. I use a jewelers saw with a very thin blade to cut out the bracelet blank.
Tiny holes are drilled allowing me to insert the saw blade into the middle of bracelet to remove the “spaces”.
Inside and outside edges are filed smooth.
The cuff is hammered for texture and shaped on a bracelet mandrel.
The bracelet is polished and cleaned.
A finished spaces cuff on a wrist, where it looks best!
