A definite artist must-have, the Cuff’lette is a mixing stainless steel palette with a built-in metal cuff bracelet that you can wear on your wrist. This allows artists that extra free hand where a traditional mixing palette is held.
Since its public launch in 2011, the cuff’lette had been in the drawing board since 1998 when I broke my metacarpal (pinky finger) and I attached a velcro to my metal mixing palette and stuck it in my wrist cast, and brace. Since then it has evolved to many versions, from attaching a metal plate to my leather wrist band which I sported early 2000-2003. In 2006, many of my colleagues had been continuously asking where I got my wrist palette, which in turn made me realize that this tool is a void in the industry. After working on a more ‘professional’ looking mixing cuff, I ran into a problem of selecting the proper metal. Most metals used in previous prototypes either changed my wrist green, or resulted to skin rashes. In 2008, partnering with my good friend Barry LaVaque who is a Jeweler made prototyping easy. As he knows everything there is to know about Jewelry and Jewelry making. Today, the cuff’lette is finally admired and used by the best of the best in the industry.
