This listing is for a set of 10 made to order dread/loc/braid cuffs with the hole size(diameter), and metal type of your choosing. The metals I use are solid, raw, unsealed metals that are cold forged. I hand hammer and shape these cuffs from raw material with great care. Each cuff is thoroughly filed and smoothed for a snag free fit, and stamped with a heatherfish maker's mark. Each cuff, no matter the hole diameter ordered will have a 7mm width. The hole size of the sample beads shown in the photos is 9mm.
These will arrive polished, but are purposely designed with raw metals to achieve an earthy, natural look. These are meant to develop a natural tarnish and patina. The philosophy of Wabi-Sabi is very much embraced by the Heatherfish brand. Wabi-Sabi, in it's pure definition, is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. However, a pro-polish pad is included with should you wish to maintain the polished finish.
