Upcycled rubber and copper wire spiral cuff.

These unique statement pieces are made from industrial rubber offcuts, fastened together with two large hand stitched copper crosses, embellished with spiral bound solid copper wire, to create a bold look.

They are the perfect compliment to copper and rubber earring range, pictured here with the Urban Cascade Rubber Earrings. Each of these are unique and handmade, so patterns will vary slightly. Specific requests can be indicated on the order form.

"In his brilliant lecture entitled The Theory and Function of Duende, Frederico Garcia Lorca attempts to shed some light on the eerie and inexplicable sadness that lives in the heart of certain works of art. “All that has dark sounds has duende,” he says, “that mysterious power that everyone feels but no philosopher can explain.” In contemporary rock music, the area in which I operate, music seems less inclined to have in its soul, restless and quivering, the sadness that Lorca talks about. Excitement, often; anger, sometimes: but true sadness, rarely. Bob Dylan has always had it. Leonard Cohen deals specifically in it. It pursues Van Morrison like a black dog and though he tries to he cannot escape it. Tom Waits and Neil Young can summon it. It haunts Polly Harvey. My friends in the Dirty 3 have it by the bucket load. The band Spiritualized are excited by it. Tindersticks desperately want it....duende needs space to breathe. It must be handled with care." Nick Cave
