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, Maple 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.

Please note that the cuff may feel snug on some wrists at first, but the natural wood will relax within a few hours for a comfortable fit.

“When I see a geometric shape or pattern that inspires me and I pair the shapes with various woods, I try to sense how the wearer will feel as they put it on or see themselves in the mirror.”

Raised on the rocky coast of New England, Henry Wischusen grew up with an appreciation for his surroundings and traditional woodworking. As a kid, he made all kinds of things out of wood, from tiny sculptures to boats. After more than three decades in the corporate world, he returned to his roots, creating organic works of art with a focus on sustainability. By using intricately woven wood veneers, he's able to let the material's natural beauty shine through while maintaining his committment to keeping forests intact.

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.

Comments about UncommonGoods Trinity Wooden Cuff:

Loved the unique look of this bracelet online but it is much smaller / flimsier in person than it is pictured. It also runs small and was tight on my wrist. Not at all made of a heavy solid feeling wood/ more like paper/ wood or thin bamboo.

              Beautiful bracelet, but fear it will break, snug on small wrist. Would be less fragile if somehow hinged or should include tips on how to maintain it, loosen it? Or maybe it is less delicate than it appears? Time will tell.

                Have received many compliments. You do have to be careful because the ends can easily catch on loose clothes or other objects. Otherwise, I really love this unique bracelet and enjoy wearing it.

                It is a unique piece unlike any I have seen. My mother has LOTS of jewelry so it's hard to find unique things. She liked it. It was a little narrower than I would have liked but once on it looked fine.
