Hammered Hablo steel cuffs

Hablo 01


My mom brought this home last night from an art exhibit. The block of stone comes with the bracelet when you buy it.

What immediately caught my attention was the variety of colors — not just the brown and oranges from the rust, but also the subtle blues and greens that come out from the way the light is reflected on the hammered steel.


Hablo 03


Reminds me very much of the colors in impressionist paintings. The artist who makes the accessories also produces artwork from the same welded material.


Hablo 04


It is a bit thick, and in the usual width for cuffs for women, but I couldn't take my eyes off it.


Hablo 02


This is how it appears worn with a steel watch. I think I'm wearing it like this today. (Again, take a look at those colors!)


Hablo 05


Maybe soon I'd learn welding myself, to make more interesting steel pieces.
