    Default Personalised Silver Cuff Bracelet

    I recently completed a commission for a personalised silver cuff bracelet, which I am very pleased with and my customer was also.

    I've written a blog on my website about my experience. You can see it here: Alexandra Buckle - Personalised Cuff Bracelet Commission

    It will be a bit simple technically for most of you, but I'm hoping you'll appreciate the designs and pictures

    Thanks for the positive comments!
    Stuart - I used 1mm thick silver for this design. I chose this thickness because I'd be able to cut it fairly easily but also in the hope that it would be thick enough to for strength. It was very sturdy in the end so that was good. Also there was the cost of the silver to consider when using a thicker sheet.

    That's good! I was worried the text would be a little boring to those in the know! I wish I'd taken some more varied pictures as I was making it to help illustrate the the blog post, but it's hard to get photos while you've got your work on a mandrel and your holding a hammer... I needed a third hand!

    Piercing was the one thing I really took to while I was at uni. Luckily I really enjoy doing it too, I find it quite relaxing!
