WINDOW CUFF - Paved with Gold
DESIGN - Paved with Gold
A tactile cuff-bracelet in copper & yarn - this piece is delicately hand knitted and hand stitched using a mixed media of smoke-grey coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
The luxury yarn used for this design is 100% merino singles which is silky-soft and non-itchy. It's hand-dyed by indie dyer Uschitita who is based in the Netherlands in her distinct colourway, 'Grounded'.
Her soft grey yarn, interspersed with flecks of golden honey & sunshine yellow, brought to mind the old story of Dick Whittington and his Cat, in which the streets of London were described as being "paved with gold".
The crystal window is knitted in smoke-grey enamelled copper wire, and is designed to resemble pavement squares, the swarovski crystals in black-diamond and light-grey opal are placed in square formation, with small specks of topaz popping out, for that hint of golden treasure.
The back of the cuff bracelet is knitted in a chequered pattern of moss-stitch and stockinette, to resemble the old cobbled streets of Victorian London.
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.
If ordering for Christmas, I will try my very best to deliver before or as close to the time as is practicable, taking into account the number of orders I have, and the respective post office delivery schedules.
This crystal cuff will come packaged in a beautiful customised silver jewellery box, perfect if buying as a gift.
This item will be shipped by Signed for/Special Delivery.
