“I guess you can say I am addicted to brass bracelets. Over the past few years, I have amassed an accidental collection. My first purchase was the Giles & Brother Railroad Spike Cuff. I bought it as an end of finals gift to myself senior year at University of Michigan.

One of these bracelets was part of a project with the Newark Police Department: they used guns taken off the street to make bracelets and each bracelet includes a serial number of one of the guns.

From there my collection seems to have a life of its own. Of course, it only makes sense to wear them all at once so when I move you can hear me coming from a mile away. I appreciate the noise, I’m not sure my fellow desk mates have been too thrilled.”
