Contemporary Polymer Wrist Armor

A dramatically over-sized cuff was my second submission to IPCA's Progress and Possibilities (third, and last-tomorrow). My central theme for all three pieces was "Protection". The top photo was the piece submitted. When it didn't win, I played around with it a little more and added some crystals and a "brass" highlight. I think I still may add some lacing to the underside.

This is so interesting, unique, and lovely. I wonder what it feels like on one's arm, is it light in weight? I think you should have won!

Thank you for commenting! I've never had a "magnificent". Makes me smile. Thanks.

Awwww, thank you. I wish I would have won too! Surprisingly, it's not heavy.

Hi Bobbi, The pieces I submitted for the competition are gone. I am going to be working on another large jewelry piece next week--check my blog around Wednesday or so and let me know what you think. Thank you so much for your interest; it is appreciated. -Marlene
