mahogany and aspen wooden cuffby Henry Wischusen
- the story
Go with the Grain
This chic, wooden cuff bracelet shows that style and sustainability can grow side by side. The interlocking bands get their distinct colors not from artificial dyes or paint, but from the varieties of wood that are used: Mahogany and Aspen. The bracelets flex to slide onto your wrist, and naturally relax with the warmth of your body to provide the perfect fit. The wood is finished with three coats of tung oil, and given a protective coat of carnauba wax. Designer Henry Wischusen uses woven bands of veneer both for their striking beauty and because the thin slices are a more efficient use of a natural resource than carving away at a block of wood. Handmade in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.

- the maker
Henry grew up on the rocky coast of New England surrounded by a great wood working tradition. In his youth, he made all kinds of things in wood, from tiny sculptures to boats. Upon leaving the corporate world after 35 years of service, Henry returned to his passion of crafting things from wood but with a new sustainable perspective. Working with delicate wood veneers, he is able to present all the beauty of the wood at the same time maintaining his reverence to the forest.
