Upper Case Accent

Look letter perfect with this bangle featuring a piece of vintage wood type. Retired from years of printing posters and broadsides, your choice of letter selected from sets of hardwood type is set in a sterling silver bezel mounted on a tension-style sterling silver bracelet. Each letter is lightly lacquered to protect its surface and showcase the embedded ink and imperfections that reflect its unique printing history. The bracelet makes a sweet birthday or Mother's Day gift, or a typographic treat for yourself. Due to the nature of letterpress printing, some letters will appear to be backwards. Designed by Ward Wallau; handmade in Mexico.

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"
