Isn't this the coolest cuff bracelet? I can see it with well worn jeans and a cut-off tee (on either sex). But I also see it lending an artistic flair to something less casual, and maybe even something on the formal side. It's versatile if you are.
The cuff is made of reclaimed metal, but all the character inherent in the zippers that served as its inspiration shine through. You can see the texture of the zipper cloth, the seam line where they were sewn together, and the ragged teeth in the unzipped area. And the two zipper pulls set off the whole piece perfectly. The creative spirit behind this cool zipper cuff is Alkemie, where there are two collaborating designers, Dara Gerson and Ashley Lowengrub. Together, they create original jewelry that is handmade using socially and environmentally responsible methods. All Alkemie jewelry is made of 100% reclaimed metals comprised of copper, zinc, and silver.
I have added Alchemie products to my handmade jewelry shopping page. You'll find a nice selection of their handmade rings, earrings, and necklaces. And you might be surprised to find a price mark-down when you click through to the product page. So click on over and check out Alkemie now. This zipper cuff is $200.
