When we were younger, my mom had her sterling silver napkin rings made into silver cuffs for my sisters and me. She had our names engraved in them. I still wear mine often.

my Mercer Island Thrift shop napkin ring cuff

So, when I found 2 silver napkin rings at Mercer Island Thrift store, I scooped them up. I tested the metal to see if it was solid or plated…and since it was plated, I know I could only cold work the metal. So, I cut a small 2.5″ piece out to create a cuff bracelet…and filed the edges. Then I took the piece I cut out and made a pendant with an antique crystal drop.
