Dive, snorkel, and scour for coral! The branchy marine organisms are sea-tasticly chic. Studied by Marine Biologists and incorporated into our fashion and interior Icon’s designs, coral elements continue to inspire and intrigue us all. As the father of the Sea, Jacques Cousteau once said, “when one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.“ In the spirit of the sea, sharing, and helping to make lives more beautiful, it’s time to get your DIY on. Next beach stroll, be sure to collect your thoughts and pretty pieces of coral to create this j’amazing cuff.
It’s on: Collect your coral treasures! Cut and fold mesh wire (traditionally used for sculpting) into your cuff. Create the cuff shape by wrapping around a glass that is comparable to the size of your wrist. After achieved size and shape is reached, fold the sharp edges back about one inch. This will soften the ends of cuffs and keep the wire from poking into your skin. Using your glue gun, apply small dabs of glue to coral (not too much- it will ooze through the wire), and place onto the cuff. Hold for a few seconds till set. Get creative with sea-life combinations. Weave string and shells for an ever bolder cuff. Yes to coral. yes to cuffs. Get involved!
