This cuff started off as one of my random.. "I wonder what would happen if I put x wire into y hole like this." It was immediately followed by, "oh hey with some hammering, a bit of weaving and a few pretty gemstones this would make a pretty nifty Slave Cuff."
So, 50 seconds of inspiration and about 10 or 12 hours of work and we've got perhaps my favorite piece of 2013, for now anyway.
Yellow Aquamarine, green freshwater pearls, dark garnets, and Paparadascha Sapphires, around a stylized filigree leaf make this my first 2013 piece reminiscent of the fall color show we should all be seeing soon in nature.
You will not be able to put on or take off this cuff without the assistance of another person. This is not an item you will be able to slip on and off over your hand.
You will receive the exact item pictured. This is the only one like it, I will be unable to make another that is an exact match as I had a limited amount of the gemstones, and filigree design elements available with which to make this piece. It cannot be re-sized.
The 10g stainless steel captive segment focal serves as the locking clasp. This ring requires a special tool called ring opening pliers to operate. To see how this works go here: You can also find a video showing how to open and close one of these rings on YouTube. www.youtube.com/watch?v=43XkD3UeG7I.
If I still have some in stock, you can purchase a pair of ring opening pliers from the Padlocks and Clasps section of my shop. Pliers like these are also available through a large number of other online vendors who carry body piercing tools and supplies.
Be very careful not to squeeze too hard when using these pliers. You can accidentally open the ring too far for the captive segment to be held securely in place. It is tension that keeps these rings closed. If you do accidentally open the clasp too far. There is another tool called ring closing pliers that you may want to locate. I do not carry those in my shop.
