Maker Monday: Uppland Bracelet.
Posted on November 03, 2014
Uppland bracelet: "The Life Cycle of the Uppland Bracelet" starring Matty. Many of our pieces involve multiple makers, but here we see Matty work on this bracelet from start to finish. Watch as he cuts the solid sterling silver band, puts it through the rolling mill and uses a hammer and the polishing cabinet to soften the ends. Next, he takes a much-needed sip of coffee - a step that's integral to the process - then it's back to work soldering the cast bronze focal to the band. Finally, he shapes the finished piece using a hammer & his hands. End scene.
