Style With Bite
A creative way to get your daily serving of style, these punchy Fruit Photo Cuffs by artist Barbara Movius marry the elements of the Dada anti-art movement with fresh photography. A direct reference to Marcel Duchamp's "readymades"--purchased, everyday objects considered art by decree of the artist--Movius created them as miniature canvases for conversation.
At once abstract and functional, each flexible, scratch and water resistant bracelet challenges the shifting form (and purpose) of jewelry, ornamentation, art and photography. Wear them in the spirit of unconventional boundary blurring, or as a striking everyday accessory. Made in Massachusetts using a more sustainable vinyl and lined with coordinating felt made with 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Velcro closure. Sold separately.

Are these slap bracelets??
Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator
Thanks for the question! These are not slap bracelets. They are handmade of a more sustainable vinyl by artist Barbara Movius. The cuffs are lined with felt, for extra comfort, and they fasten with Velcro, so they will stay put on your wrist.
