The Right Cuff
Fashion 2006

With strong sculptural jewelry becoming important, it's not surprising that the item of the season is the cuff bracelet. Designers have created an amazing crop of new cuffs. But rather than the sleek and geometric cuffs of the past, most new styles are textured for richness and have negative space to keep them light. Wood and other materials also add volume without weight. Yellow gold dominates here, although some designers are turning to sterling silver or vermeil as an option to keep these large bracelets affordable for young fashion-forward women. Organic motifs and a hand-worked feeling give these cuffs natural appeal. ó Cheryl Kremkow
