upcycleds comicbook bracelet

Now for something even further out of the mainstream … For all you fans of comic books and general geekery — Sasha at RedwingedBlackbirds creates handmade jewelry from upcycled vintage comic books. This vintage “Superman” cuff features the Man of Steel in all his glory. The cuff has a base of lightweight aluminum that is super comfy to wear and fits nearly any wrist size. To help protect it from water and from the elements, the designer decoupage-sealed the entire piece with several coats of non-toxic, earth-friendly sealant.
