Properly cuffed

Baker's cuffs on

Don’t you love the slightly concave curve of these cuffs from Boston’s Betsy Baker? Her silvery polymer veneers are enhanced by the brass forms.

This pile of prototypes is part of a new wholesale line Betsy is building. She offers this early peek on Instagram.

Go to her site to see how she elegantly transforms vintage components and gives them a fresh flair by combining them with polymer.

Turkish polymer for fall

This polymer necklace from Istanbul’s Nihal Erpeden reminds us to enjoy the last bit of the fall season this weekend. The Turkish to English translation is pretty rough but the visuals tell you what you need to know.

Look closely to see how she integrates the copper wire for the bail into the veins of the polymer maple leaf which hangs from a braided leather cord.
