Spanning the Mississippi River, the Hernando de Soto bridge connects the cities of West Memphis, AR and Memphis, TN. Completed in 1973, it is a through arch bridge and is frequently referred to as the “M” Bridge. This cuff was created as an homage to a personal and professional friend from Tennessee, as well as a nod to the rad city of Memphis.
Inspired by her travels and by the bond a bridge makes between the communities it spans, designer Betsy Cross brings us the Bridge Cuff Collection. Each cuff is a celebration of the bridge’s unique elements and structural beauty. Etched on the inside you’ll find the year the bridge was completed and its geographic coordinates.
Materials: Etched brass cuff bracelet. Available in brass, silver plated, or gold plated.*
*Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipping on Gold Plated cuffs.
Made by hand in our Portland, Oregon studio.

Raw brass and silver plate will tarnish naturally. On raw brass, tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth. To clean plated metal, try a squirt of Windex on a soft, non-abrasive cloth.
You'll get more life out of your cuff if you put it on and remove it properly. Click to watch our how-to video about this.
