A perfectly lovely Protect This Woman cuff whose black opal has been chipped. A fantastic deal for a minor imperfection.
Original copy below:
About a decade ago I was gifted a little silver cuff that read "protect this woman." I cherished it and the sentiment behind it, and knew I wanted to create something in that vein someday, but with my own aesthetic. When I began to work more heavily in copper forming, I knew I'd found the medium to give birth to my iteration.
This cuff is made nearly entirely of copper. Embedded within it are three precious and powerful stones--Ethiopian opal, black opal, and rainbow moonstone. Its underside is stamped with "protect this woman." The bangle-like cuff has been formed in a circle, as opposed to the common oblong shape, and rather than being bent open and closed (which quickly stresses and degrades metal) is slipped across the smallest part of the wrist and then easily secured with a quick-catching magnetic clasp.
