Torc Jewelry Series: Twist Cuff Bracelet I – Silver
During ancient times Europeans wore metal neckpieces and bracelets that were twisted into a rigid ring called a Torc. The word torc means to twist, so I took inspiration both from the ancient forms and the meaning of the word to design my Torc Series.
This bracelet in the series began as round wire that was forged on two sides to create the twisted shape. It was hammered multiple times to create the final asymmetrical form.
This bracelet was created from a thicker stock of silver wire than Torc Twist Cuff Bracelet II, so it is heavier and thicker in dimension.
