the Peaks + Valleys Cuff
the Peaks + Valleys Cuff
Hand stamped with mountains from end to end this cuff is my answer to a simple, heavy gauge stamped cuff bracelet with a meaningful intention behind it. I wanted it to fit both a mountain style aesthetic, and pull vibes from the traditional southwestern style of silver stamped bracelets crafted by the Diné people.
Since I made this cuff I have been wearing mine daily, and I find myself getting lost in the peaks and valleys while dreaming of being in the mountains. Its meaning has also been slowly revealing itself to me as well. The peaks, valleys, and every point in between are all part of this journey we share as human beings that is full of highs, lows, and mundane daily life. Through the joys of life, and the times of grief or sadness the mountains are always a place I can go and feel completely myself without judgement, or needing to be anything I'm not. I just show up as I am and the mountains accept me, and allow me to simply be present in the moment.
I hope this piece reminds you to enjoy and be present for the peaks, because there will always be valleys, and to never forget that after every valley is another trip to the highs of the mountain tops.
Each one will be one of a kind because it’s made to order, in your size, by my hands. Expect your cuff to ship within 1-4 weeks of ordering.
*** To personalize your with a short phrase, a name, a date, a word that is special to you, or a mountain range you love stamped inside. Leave the personalized message in the notes as well. If no message is left I will assume you don’t want one and do a makers mark inside instead.
How to measure your wrist size: Using a soft tape measure (or a piece of string that you can measure on a ruler or tape measure), measure around the wrist you will wear the cuff on. Measure right against the skin. The tape measure or string should not be loose or tight, just gently against the skin. Be sure to include the small bump of your ulna on the outside of your wrist in your measurement. This is the wrist size you will leave in the notes and I will make your cuff according to this size.
To order: Measure your wrist and leave your wrist size at check out in the notes section. These come with a heavy oxidation, if you prefer a light patina please also let me know with your wrist size and I will create yours as you request. You can also have your cuff personalized with a short phrase, a name, a date, a word that is special to you, or a mountain range you love stamped inside. Leave the personalized message in the notes as well. If no message is left I will assume you don’t want one and do a makers mark inside instead.
