Until You're Home Again Cuff
When a loved one is deployed showing your support can make all the difference. This is the perfect piece to wear to let them know you will be waiting for them to return safely.
My until you come collect was inspired by the concept of how spouses tie a yellow ribbon around banisters, trees and more to let their loved one know they are waiting for them to return.
Cuff is made of thick aluminum and hand stamped with choice of wording. For finishing touch you can choose to have a brass ribbon added as a dangle. Perfect to represent the yellow ribbon.
•aluminum is tarnish resistant and not plated
•the ribbon is made of raw brass wire that I hand craft into a bow
•components are stainless steel chain providing you with strength, tarnish resistance, and something more hypoallergenic.
•hand stamped by me providing something hand made from the heart, rather than machine made.
cuff before being formed is 6" x 1/4" to provide a size reference. Please note the cuff is meant to have a space in the back. You do not want to open and close the cuff as this will weaken it over time. You want to have just enough space to squeeze it onto wrist.
Hand stamping is the process where I use forged metal stamps, which contain letters, numbers, punctuation or designs, a hammer and steel block. I individually strike each letter, number, punctuation or design into the metal to leave an impression. I do not use a machine, nor a press. Many confuse engraving to be the same as hand-stamping, however, it is a very different process. Engraving is machine done in which metal is taken away and usually has no character charm. With hand stamping spacing and impression depth is not exact, which is a charm to the process of hand stamping pieces. It is not to be seen as a flaw, but rather a perfectly imperfect custom hand made unique piece for you to treasure. This has become a form many love and appreciate.
