This Mokume Gane cuff was made from square copper and brass rod, twisted, carved and backed with sterling silver to improve wear ability and durability. The inside silver layer has a brushed finish.
The resulting cuff was given a patina to highlight the pattern. A light wax coating was added to help preserve the patina; note the patina may change slightly over time with wear.
The bracelet has an oval shape (length of mokume stock is ~6 1/8"), has a total circumference of ~7 1/8 inches long on the outside curve that includes a 1" opening and is 7/16" wide. The opening on this cuff could be adjusted a bit wider but no more than 1/4", it cannot be made smaller. The thickness of the combined sterling and mokume stock is 2mm, not quite 12 gauge (2.06mm).
This cuff is a bit large on me so it should fit a medium/large or larger woman's wrist or a small man's wrist.
My wrist is 6" in circumference; most of my cuff bracelets range from 7" to 7 1/4" in circumference and fit loosely with a 1" opening. The width of the cuff also matters, a wider cuff needs to be a bit longer than a narrow one since your forearm size gets larger toward the elbow. It also depends on how snug you like your cuff to fit.
The best way to determine your cuff size is to measure the circumference of a cuff bracelet that fits you well, including the opening. Otherwise you can measure the circumference of your wrist where you want the cuff to sit. The total cuff length = the length of the metal plus the length of the opening.
Anne Wolf has kindly agreed I can use her sizing guidance on women's cuffs from her Etsy store:
Small = 5.25" long with 1" gap - fits up to 6.25" circumference wrists
Medium = 5.5" long with a 1.25" gap, so it is good for wrists up to 6.75" in circumference
Medium = 5.63" long with 1" gap - fits up to 6.63" circumference wrists
Medium/Large = 5.75" long with a 1.25" gap, so it is good for wrists up to 7" in circumference
Large = 6" long with 1.25" gap - fits up to 7.25" circumference wrists
