The overlay is pierced or sawn out from a sheet of brass and then all the edges of the design are filed and sanded to even out the pattern. The overlay is then soldered to a piece of sterling silver sheet and then this piece is soldered to a square wire on top of the cuff. The cuff is made from heavy gauge square wire and fits a size medium to large wrist. It can be made smaller so if interested, please contact me. The entire piece is given a brushed finish. All of the corners and edges both on the overlay and on the cuff itself have been sanded a bit as well to soften the edges. It's very easy and comfortable to put on/take off. The overlay piece measures 1 7/8" by 1 7/8" square. I have a small wrist(a little less than 6") and you can see the cuff on my wrist for size in the second photo. The overlay is raised up off the cuff by about 1/8" and the opening in the cuff is about 1 1/4"--see last photo. Feel free to contact me if you'd like more info or photos.
