I played around with bracelet making this weekend and finished this cuff I've been planning in my head for a while.  Smiley

The cuff is stainless steel polished to a mirrored finish. The engraved text reads:

"And though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
It shall not touch with breath of bale,
The pleasance of our fairy-tale."

It is a portion of the 'Through the Looking Glass' epigraph.  Smiley I made a few other ID style bracelets too but I haven't had a chance to polish and photograph them yet. This was my favorite.  Grin

Shiny, stylish, and promotes literacy.  What's not to love?  The ribbon tie was an especially inspired choice; I'd love to see a quote from the older Snow White stories tied with a red ribbon... no chance you take requests?   ; )

Gorgeous. Your stuff is so inspiring.
Is there any chance that you didn't make this with a laser cutter? I want to learn this technique so badly now.
