Surfite Cuff Bracelet - Tropical Rainbow Surfite on Sterling Silver Adjustable Cuff Band

Handmade cuff with surf style, perfect for summer. The Tropical Rainbow colorway features opaque and trasparent rainbow hues. Stack with other cuffs/bracelets or wear alone for a solid surf statement. 

Open-band design makes this an adjustable bracelet: carefully widen the ends and slip onto the wrist, then gently squeeze to fit. Take care not to over-bend which can result in a misshapen band.

Cuff is 100% handmade in San Diego, California by Casey and Jess of Low Tide Landing. Sterling silver (0.925) with a fine silver (0.999) bezel. Accent components hand-sawn and handmade. Surfite (upcycled surfboard resin) cabochon is cut, shaped, and polished from start to finish by us at Low Tide Landing. 


And since you may be wondering, WHAT IS SURFITE, ANYWAYS? Here's a little heads up:

SURFITE is a playful name for upcycled surfboard resin. It's a man-made by-product of the surfboard glassing process: hand-mixed resins are poured over the boards, and the excess spills over the sides and onto the shop floor, where it builds up, layer by layer, color by color.

We've partnered with some local shapers and glassers to turn that would-be waste material into a beautiful alternative "gemstone". Though a time- and labor-intensive process the resin slabs are cut, shaped, smoothed, and polished, until they become the beautiful surfite pieces featured in our jewelry. 

With so many colors, surfite jewelry pairs with just about anything, and its surfboard origins give it a disctinctly beachy, summery feel. But best of all, by working with surfite we're salvaging waste material from local sources and giving it new purpose and life. It's a win-win!


SURFITE CARE

SInce Surfite is made of resin, it is a very durable material. However, like any natural gemstone, please take care when wearing as the material can become marred if knocked against a hard surface with enough force. Both surfite and silver can be gently buffed with a polishing cloth to bring it up to a sparkly shine.
