It is inspired by structure of a car suspension and a train stopper. This idea is used to make the main body of the cuff. It has 2 compression springs in both sides.

The biggest challenge was choosing a clasp. A clasp was integral but it limited size. Therefore, I aimed to design a clasp and a cuff as one object.

cuff, bracelet, extendable, jewelry, modern, futuristic, architectural
I researched and utilized technologies in order to materialize all the shapes that were always just in my imagination.
The cuff has two compression springs inside two bracket parts. Therefore, when you try to wear this cuff, two wrist holders on both sides open and it fits automatically your wrist size. The spring tension holds your wrist comfortably and also it moves along your wrist move.
