Petite Lavender Cuff
Overlooking the Luberon Valley, a patchwork quilt blankets the lush countryside, bursting with colors only nature can produce. During lavender season, the patchwork squares of lavender transform overnight from green to violet-purple. Breathing in the aroma of the newly blooming flowers, Kristen couldn’t help but think of home and the annual azalea blossoms. Every bloom is a miniature treasure.
The Petite Lavender Cuff celebrates life’s journeys, with two hand-made floral forms joined by a delicate rippling bangle, like the stem of a newly picked flower.
The Bonjour Belle Collection is a whimsical recollection of Kristen’s magical summer spent as an artist in residence in Lacoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from the provincial market. Duck behind ancient arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against castle walls laced with fragile blooms, and gaze at the lush valley below. Here in her Savannah studio, Kristen brings her memories to life, melding southern imagination with a French fairytale.
Handcrafted in sterling silver, this cuff measures approximately 8mm at the tallest point and is accented by a "lavande" bloom, ranging anywhere from 9-12mm in designer's choice, on each side. Available in various wrist sizes of your choice from 5.5"-7.5" in interior circumference, each cuff is made slightly adjustable to ensure you find your perfect fit - the first time! The open side contains a 3/4"-1" opening, allowing for easy wear and removal. The beauty of this piece is that it can be worn with the flowers showing or reversed for ultimate versatility.
Note from the designer: once you find your happy fit, please avoid re-adjusting the cuff by repeatedly opening, closing or bending it on your wrist. Due to the natural characteristics of sterling silver/metals, prolonged stretching will most likely result in cracking or ultimately failure of your piece.
We find the best way to put a cuff on, is to take the opening of the cuff and put it over the side of your wrist (which happens to be the skinniest part of your wrist). Then twist the cuff, allowing it to comfortably sit on your wrist, looking up (or down...your choice!), and you’re ready to go! Take off the cuff in the same fashion - simply twist the cuff so that it slides gently off the side of the wrist. Voilà!
At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
