I spent most of Friday and Saturday sawing, drilling, filing, and hammering this cuff into shape. My mom admired a similar bracelet while we were out shopping last month, and when I got home, I sketched up my own design. I love how it turned out, but I probably won’t make anything like it for quite a while– it required the kind of arduous work that only a mother’s day present can inspire. The cut-out is a favorite shape of mine, an homage to Gothic architecture, which I’ve long admired. Not one to waste, I used the cut-out scrap to make myself a matching necklace:
I’m so fortunate to have not one, but two amazing mothers in my life. Happy mother’s day, ladies!
