Are you a man that is looking for a totem to symbolize something special to you?
Or do you have a man in your life that would appreciate such a thing?
Most of my work is delicate and feminine, but don’t be fooled, that’s not all I can do or like to do.
I love to give metal a beating and become mesmerized by the malleability of it’s nature to take the shape of what my hammer tells it. Each hammer mark is a trail of history; it is the memoir of a jewels birth before it begins its journey with the wearer where characteristics of time such as scratches will tell their own stories of living life.
Pictured here is a happy customer from Wisconsin, Garrett Fait, sporting the custom bracelet his wife got him for his birthday. He’s a big dude, and this is a huge bracelet that fits him to a T. It is an adjustable bracelet with sliding sterling silver tubes on genuine leather cord to ensure the fit is right since I didn’t get to measure his wrist in person.
“Mariel!!! I received the bracelet today and am speechless! It’s amazing, and I love the “Fait” on the back. Thanks again so much:)))” – Chrissy Fait
I so enjoyed making this bracelet. My designs often evolve as I make them and take my 2d drawing into 3d form and function. As I was making this bracelet I added a separate plate on the back to give the piece some depth and girth and decided to pierce out the family name on the back. The front of the bracelet features commemorative family dates, which was the idea of Chrissy’s best friend Tia, also a The Heart Department client.
