Left: Part of the new Moore/Moura Collection from Oakland’s MGG Studio, the SINU cuff features a slim but dynamic profile sparked by the curves of Henry Moore’s sculptures and echoing the ebb and flow of the tide on Portugal’s beaches. Hand carved in wax and cast in sustainable recycled bronze or recycled sterling silver, it’s gorgeous on its own but also makes the perfect addition to your cuff stack.
