Our Mama Bear with Cubs was the first cuff we introduced and is still the most popular. We start with raw brass and and the design using our unique acid-free etching process and then add a light random texture. No two cuffs are the same. We can also offer this same design with an extra cub. You have the choice of two beautiful finishes.
Matte Silver Finish:
The etched piece is electroplated with 500 microinches (µin) of sterling silver, a slight oxidation and a protective finish. Most silver plate is just 10 to 20 µin thick, making this at least 25 times thicker! This process is a nickel free process. The result is a gorgeous matte super durable silver finish. Take care of your piece just like any other silver jewelry you have. Keep it a cool dry airtight box, bag or the packaging it comes with. You can use a silver polishing cloth or sterling silver cleaner but all your really need is a clean soft cloth. Lead-free, nickel-free, and cadmium-free.
Antique Brass Finish
After the piece is etched and cleaned up, we darken it with a brown black oxidizer but then remove almost all of it, leaving just enough oxidation to bring out the details of the design. We finish up by giving it a light lacquer to keep it looking beautiful. Like the silver finish, just care for this piece as you would any other jewelry. You can use a polishing cloth or clean cloth or even give it a light buff with a nail file. Lead-free, nickel-free, and cadmium-free.
