Love is in the air and jewelry is a wonderful way to express the joy of love. Making meaningful jewelry is a very literal way. My client wanted to make a sterling silver cuff with "love" handwritten (using his letter) in sterling silver wire on the top of the cuff.
We started the cuff by annealing (soften) the sterling silver square stock by slowly heating it. Once soften I could then form the bars into the three bands of silver for the cuff design. Soldering them altogether went rather smoothly.
The sterling silver cuff came out lovely. When it shipped we could say Love is really in the air.
