Maker Monday: Uni Cuff.
Posted on February 23, 2015
The Uni cuff: aka what Wonder Woman would buy if she visited our shop. This brass cuff from You + Me, pt. 1 is a total power piece. Put it on and you’ll know exactly what we mean. The Uni spends time with three of our makers before it’s ready to be sent off into the world.
It starts out with Shea, who we see annealing the metal, stamping it with our logo, and using both a hammer and his hands to shape it into a cuff. Then it’s off to Allison, who wears gloves while oxidizing the recessed line detail on the two inner sides of the cuff. Alyssa is in charge of the last few steps, including a quick shine on the polishing cabinet and a trip to finish in the tumbler.
