Gold Art Deco Cuff with Old Powder Puff Centerpiece
Hidden Beauty was another title I had for this piece because of the powder compact that has a pretty little puff inside… the beauty could be it, or the lady hiding her secret to flawless skin (the powder.)

Remember the “I Spy” books? Or, “Where’s Waldo?” Well, my work is “I Spy” on the wrist! Well, look for the chain edging on this gold art deco cuff. You'll also find some hearts sprinkled throughout, a vintage cat eye marble, butterfly, star, old watch sans its crystal, faux coin, leaves, a shell, golden caviar…
The compact was too worn to have collector value now, so it is living another life as the centerpiece of this cuff. The profile on it is low, so it is easy to wear and at the 2 inch width, it will make a cool fashion statement while not being massive.
So, what is this caviar? I use tiny glass beads to make a caviar paste to hide any glue, unsightly findings, and in general enhance and strengthen the piece. It is something that takes extra time, and materials, but is the difference between ordinary and SPECTACULAR! Kind of like the difference between a fried egg and a souffle; a dash-out-the-door makeup job and a look-like-a-movie-star or Paris runway ready! I think you get the picture…
