I bought a sheet of acrylic a while ago for experiment’s sake. I’ve cut up god-knows-how-many vinyl records, so I thought it’d be nice to switch to acrylic for a change.
And anyways, ever since I laid eyes on the awesome chunky clear jewellery in Michael Kors’ Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection, I have been DYING to experiment with making a transparent cuff. Yes, I know it’s a little copycat, but hey, there is technically not much ‘design’ in a basic rectangle to form a cuff.
This is the first one I experimented with. Just a very basic piece; fits a little loose, so the silhouette is chunky. Then I experimented with a second piece:
I reduced the width a little, the fit is the same, but I added a little more interest by etching lines onto the surface.
I’m still trying to figure out a way to make it perfect because the opening of the cuff is still a little wonky to me. But as of now, I’m just having fun wearing them out!
