Cuff bracelets by DENNY DIAMOND


"Pain in the brass" bracelet by  Denny Diamond © 2009  - a top-notch fusion of copper and bronze featuring a rich texture on its surface and rich ornated design and craftsmanship that turned my head on first sight.
I just looooooooVD it!
Beautiful work by this Canadian designer who shared her artsy approach with me.

This bracelet above is made with solid copper sewn to a raw brass cuff.  She perforated the edges and whip-stitched it with copper wire and brass (gold coloured) beads. This is actually a prototype for a sterling and goldfilled version. She named it "Bead, Bound and Beyond". 

The next one is sterling and goldfilled wire with goldfilled beads. According to her is "really much simpler to do because once it was
done, it was done--I didn't have to sew it to anything". It doesnt look simple to me.



Above " Double path" bracelet by Denny Diamond © 2009.  Sterling silver and gold-filled. 



Another highlight of our visit to Toronto was  Denny Diamond. We meet at John Bead showroom(it seems like the best Canadian designers are fans of John Bead) and I had to stop her(actually I grabbed her wrist just like we Brazilians like to do it) to ask about the cuff bracelet she was wearing. It is a one of a kind, made and designed by her and I incredibly loved her work. We hit and I believe on her ability to transform metal in wearable art. Since I started posting some of my beaded bracelets I thought it would be nice to have her work next to my one because is definitely DALICIUUS !!!

Hi, Fernando!
Wow, my stuff looks terrific! I just want to mention that the "Double Path" bracelet is sterling silver and gold filled. But that's ok, I appreciate the exposure.
Thank you so much!

Denny

I had been lucky enough to see more work from Denny. They are amazing. How this artist makes such a fine motives with not so soft materials. Her designs are very refreshing and they are quite unique.
...and knowing her personally, I should say her works are as beautiful as her soul.
