Stroke of Luck

The horseshoe is one of the best-known good-luck charms, and has been for centuries. In the middle ages, a trio of horseshoes would be nailed above a sick person's bed to bring on a speedy recovery. And superstitious sailors believed that attaching a horseshoe to the mast of their ships would help their vessels safely navigate through tumultuous waters. Even today, the horseshoe's iconic scooped shape is still considered to be a symbol of hope and prosperity, and it can be seen hung above doorways around the world to bring good fortune to the occupants inside.

Inspired by this powerful omen's lucky charms, Chicago-based jewelry designer Dana Reed created this series of sophisticated pieces that evokes the horseshoe's iconic shape in a subtly beautiful fashion. In this delicate cuff, bands of shimmering sterling silver are hammered into a u-shape and bound with twists of fine14 karat rose-gold-filled thread, hinting at the horseshoe's well-known shape for double the luck. Don it everyday to increase your chances of warding off misfortune, or spread the luck around by giving the piece to a friend in need. Handmade in Chicago.

“I think everyone should have at least one statement piece that they pull out and feel great in and sets them apart.””

It was Dana Reed’s lifelong plan to be a lawyer, but while studying abroad in Rome, something changed. Inspired by European culture and mid-century modern art, Dana discovered her passion for art, and began crafting jewelry. Her hand-fashioned designs started as simple, beaded pieces, but over time became complex metal works. They are an effortless marriage of sophisticated minimalism with a hint of urban edge. Dana envisions her jewelry on someone who isn’t afraid to take risks or make a statement. She lives and creates in Chicago.

    I gave this as a college graduation gift to an art major, who loved it. It looks exactly like the picture. Delicate, artistic, a little unusual and with a lot of personality.

    It is exactly as shown in most ways... My wife loved it! The only thing negative that I can find is that it was not as symmetrical as the picture shown.... But my wife never mentioned that.... She loved it!

        Simple and elegant

        By 

        from Australia

        Comments about UncommonGoods Hammered Cuff:

        The beauty of this bracelet is in its simplicity.

        The bracelet is well made and looks like the product shown on the picture.

        The bracelet opening easily slides over the wrist and springs back to its original shape for a nice secure and comfortable fit. I imagine the bracelet could be bent/formed to suit larger/smaller wrists.

        As far as rating goes I gave it 5/5 despite there being no intricate detail workmanship to assess quality. That said, it is well made and it would be unfair to rate it less than five just because of it's simplistic design.

        Is it good value for money? That's a personal view. But to give you an idea on weight, the bracelet (without packaging) weighed approximately 12 grams (using uncalibrated electronic scales).
