One of the easiest ways to turn an everyday outfit into something special is to add silver. So this Atacama aluminum cuff bracelet is perfect. It is light weight, adjustable, handmade and features a blocked design. Best of all, the artisan who made it was paid a fair wage in a dignified work environment in Chile. It is 7/8ths of an inch wide.
