Hey everyone, meet the Tilikum Crossing Cuff, the newest member of our newest Bridge Collection!
The design of this cuff was inspired by the Tilikum Crossing, one of the many bridges that spans the Willamette River in betsy & iya's hometown of Portland, OR. It opened to the public in September 2015 and is the first major bridge in the U.S. to allow transit vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists, but not cars. COOL, huh?!
Ever since the Tilikum Crossing began construction, we heard people ask "will Betsy design a Tilikum cuff?" We can now say with an enthusiastic "YES" that she will, and she did. We kept the reveal a super secret, because what's a holiday season without a few surprises?
We're not saying you need 3 Tilikum Cuffs, but we're not not saying that, either ;-). We love how it already plays well with other b&i designs like the Puebla ring seen here.
One of my favorite parts of watching the Bridge cuffs come to life in production is seeing them right before they're formed. I think they look so cool all flat and fanned out!
What do YOU think of the Tilikum Crossing Cuff? We can't wait to start seeing this little bit o' Portland around wrists everywhere.
