Inspired by the cool colours, patina and words on vintage license plates, I take these metal beauties and remake them into wrist cuffs!
I love to find interesting words on plates and cut them out. Some of my faves are “Yours to Discover”, “Truck”, “Trailer”, and “America’s Dairyland”.
Own and wear a piece of history…who knows what roads these have travelled.

How to make it
Step 1: cut out a band a desired width from the plate (the height of a plate is the perfect size)
sand down the edges...this takes a long time...start from rough and go down to a very smooth grit until it's soft and smooth
wax and polish the entire surface
bend into shape to wear
