This sterling silver cuff bracelet mounting features a decorative split design accented with twist-wire strands, swirls and flowers. A scalloped oval bezel mounting is surrounded by tiny, open petals, creating a richness of textures that command attention. Set one 25 x 18mm cabochon in the bezel and push the walls inward over the stone to hold it in place. For added security, if desired, place a drop or two of jeweler's epoxy in the cup before placing the stone. The bracelet is oxidized to highlight the details of the design.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
