WINDOW CUFF - Highland Heather
DESIGN - Highland Heather
A tactile cuff-bracelet in copper & yarn - this piece is delicately hand knitted and hand stitched using a mixed media of tanzanite coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
The luxury yarn used for this design is a mix of Bluefaced leicester wool & mulberry silk, which is very soft & non-itchy. It's hand-dyed by one of my favourite dyers, Countess Ablaze, who is based in Manchester, UK.
Known for her vibrant, rich and unusual use of colour, this is a subtle colourway, one you would not think is in her usual repertoire, in an calming mix of greys, khaki & lavender, called 'Comfortaa'.
Her soft grey yarn, interspersed with short swathes of khaki, lavender & silver, reminded me of our Scottish landscapes blanketed by highland heather on a frosty morning.
The crystal window is knitted in dark tanzanite enamelled copper wire, and is designed to resemble a bed of highland heather, the swarovski crystals in khaki & jonquil-satin represent the pale stems, with purple-velvet, cyclamen-opal, light-amethyst forming the petals. Light-grey opal & clear crystals add a touch of frost.
The back of the cuff bracelet is knitted in a twisting cable pattern, to resemble stems of heather.
The wire colour may vary slightly depending on the reel batch, and how the yarn colours fall within the piece may vary depending on which part of the yarn I start knitting with, but any variation will be very slight. The swarovski crystals will be identical to the sample image.
As there is only a limited amount of luxury yarn in this colourway available, there will ONLY be a select number of these cuffs available to buy.
This cuff is a made to order, and made-to-measure item.
When you add the item to cart and then go to checkout, you will need to specify in the comments box:
**YOUR WRIST MEASUREMENT to the nearest half inch.**
Make sure to give an accurate wrist measurement that's comfortable - the yarn will give enough stretch for you to take the cuff on and off easily, so there is no need to add extra inches, unless you want the cuff to sit losely, or prefer to wear it higher up the arm.
As this is a made to order item, please allow at least 3 weeks for delivery for UK & Europe, and 6 weeks for USA & Worldwide.
This crystal cuff will come packaged in a beautiful customised silver jewellery box, perfect if buying as a gift.
