Initial idea from Christina from Berlin-Mitte:
I would like to have a cuff bracelet made of brass with the words LIEBLINGSMENSCH in capital letters written on it.
In case you want to have your own idea realized just follow this link.
The story of the project:
I would like to give my offer.
There are two types of Cuffs: – Brass Wire and Cast Piece
Of these types there are two sizes:
● Small/Medium: Internal Diameter is 55mm, Internal depth is 45mm,Opening of the cuff is 27mm
● Medium large size: Internal Diameter is 56mm, Internal depth is 46mm, Opening of the cuff is 29mm
We offer good quality with a smooth finish with no bubbles, scratches and red marks
The cost of the Flattened Brass wire cuff is 1800 ksh per piece and for the Cast cuff is 2500 ksh per piece
I would like the cuff to be made of brass and 5mm thick in size small. With the words LIEBLINGSMENSCH engraved on it.
That can be done. Would you like it in Cast or Brass flattened wire?
Thank you for reaching back. The cost of the Cuff comprises of :
1. A full roll of brass wire- Ksh. 1500
2. Labour Ksh.300
3.Transport Ksh. 100
4. Packaging and gift box: Ksh 550
The price is fine. Coukd you please use the font in the example in the uploaded picture? If that’s not possible please send me an example of the lettering you were thinking of using. Thanks.
I have send a explanatory picture to show the font I have (Times New Roman Font) The height of the letters is 4mm and the width is 2mm
We are able to get Gauge 6 wire where when flattened we acquire 3mm thickness and not the 5mm. Gauge 6 is the thickest wire we can find in Kenya. The 3mm thickness will still be okay as the 5mm thickness. Would you like us to proceed with the 3mm flattened wire?
Will the reduced thickness affect the lettering?
Thank you for reaching back. No it will not
Kindly find photos of the product. It is completely done and ready for shipment
The letters on the bracelet don‘t seem to be on the same level like in the picture I provided. Especially in the last part of the word from -MENSCH.
Thanks for your feedback. It's a little hard to have the letters totally on the same level since this is a handmade technique. I could try with another piece and see how best it will be
The other piece is ready. The alignment is better. I have uploaded photos, looking forward to your feedback.
It still seems to be a challenge but I understand that it can’t be perfect as it’s manual.
Thank you for redoing it. I’m looking forward to receiving it.
