I have always loved the henna patterns of traditional Mehndi designs! They translate perfectly to my hand-drawn etched cuffs. I always paint each design onto a sheet of copper so that no two designs are ever exactly the same. Then, I use a mild acid to etch the non-painted surfaces on the sheet so that the painted design stands out in bright relief. Afterward, I soldered a beautiful aventurine cabochon and rope surround in the center of the cuff. Once forged, I applied a warm brown patina and hand-buffed to bring out the high- and lowlights of this incredible texture. Afterward, I sealed the piece with a protective and hypoallergenic sealant to preserve the finish.

I love fashioning unique and individual pieces using ancient, handcrafted techniques: for example, cutting my own stones and creating my own chain and components from sheet and wire. No two pieces from The Last Link are ever exactly the same!
