Into the Woods

Henry Wischusen cuts against the grain of traditional jewelry design by crafting this cuff from natural hardwoods. The interlocking bands get their distinct colors from the varieties of wood that are used: Cherry, Walnut and Wenge. The bracelet flexes to slide onto your wrist, and naturally relaxes 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. The artist 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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Henry Wischusen

created by

Henry Wischusen

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.

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Trinity Wooden Cuff qualified for the Collection:

Original Design

Cutting against the grain of traditional jewelry design, this cuff is made from natural hardwoods. The interlocking bands get their distinct colors not from artificial dyes or paint, but from the varieties of wood that are used: Cherry, Walnut, and Wenge.
