Cactus Spine Cuff
Production Time: 1-3 days
This silver cactus spine cuff is a perfect embodiment of the minimalist beauty, shapes, and textures of the desert. I've taken the wide, ribbed spines of a compass barrel cactus and cast them in beautiful, bright silver. Joined together at their bases, the cuff ends taper as the spines come to their points. I like wearing the cuff 'backwards' to feature the points on the outside of my wrist, though the spines' texture shines in either direction. The inside of the cuff retains the spines' texture, as well as my maker's mark and "925" to designate that it's sterling silver.
The spines are 5-6mm across.
All metals used are Eco-friendly, recycled, and shower/pool friendly. Solid Sterling Silver, stamped 925 // Bronze
Recycled metal, in this case, is gold and silver that has been reclaimed from jewelry that is at the end of its useful life OR from metal that is left over from the silversmithing process (everything from tiny silver dust to excess wire). Recycled metals reduce the impact of mining while preserving the quality of your jewelry. Recycled metal does not mean that it is inferior in any way - it's not plated, a lower karat quality, or hollow. Exactly the same, just cleaner and more ethical.
