Undulating Sculpted Octopus Cuff Bracelet

$789.00$899.00

An undulating octopus leg to gracefully embrace your wrist – this Octopus Cuff Bracelet is as bold as it is beautiful! An empowering bracelet to wear, this was designed from our interactions with the intelligent and mesmerising Hawaiian Day Octopus. The bracelet mimics the curling search of an octopus arm as it unfurls. Gently wrapping around the wrist, it ends in a characteristic spiral designed to sit on top of the wrist (at the back of hand).

He’e (octopus, tako)

In Hawaii, octopuses are called he’e (in Hawaiian, with a glottal stop between the two e’s) and tako (the Japanese word for it) and if we are lucky, we see them when diving. Deeply intelligent, they have multiple ways to defend themselves – black ink, camouflage, even squirting water. (There’s more about them in our dec 2014 blog) We enjoy their company on dives for both playfulness and inventiveness – even when very small these wonderful creatures will pull themselves up to size to intimidate a photographer!

Details

This Undulating Octopus Cuff Bracelet is a small-scale sculpture of an octopus arm to adorn your wrist. Hand-sculpted with attention to detail, we then polish the wax master, cast it in sterling silver, and hand-finish. We make wax replicas, then cast it in low-tarnish silver. Each of these is solid sterling. We then give it a beautiful finish – either rhodium (a hard inert metal in the platinum family) or 18K gold vermeil (a thick layer of gold). Both give a shiny, low maintenance finish to a beautiful bracelet.

This is a single sized bracelet that you can adjust the opening to fit. However, do keep adjustments to a minimum – just a few times. Like when you bend a paper clip back and forth, silver gets brittle with too much bending. (in other words, once fit, resist adjusting each time you put it on.)
