The My Fair Coral Cuff has been around since the very first TC collection, back in 2010, and has since turned into a signature piece. So, I thought it was about time for everyone to know its origin story!
For my senior project at SAIC I hand made and designed a collection of swimwear. One of the pieces was a coral themed top and skirted bottom (1.) which featured an embroidered piece of fan coral (took me around 12 hours!!!).
Two years later, when trying to come up with ideas for my first jewelry collection, I ended up returning to that skirt. I took a picture of the embroidery and put it into photoshop (2.) where I played with the image until it was a workable design for my model maker.
