Striking diamond birds cascade around the arm, as though caught in mid-flight. The hand is protected with a bold metal cuff, hand-forged and beautifully engraved. Made in two parts, the cuff can be worn alone as a hand glove, or extended into an evening glove. Every detail in the piece, including the chainmail, has been carefully constructed by hand to ensure a perfect fit to Daphne’s arm. Stylized armour made of precious metals, studded with gems.

Daphne Guinness is amazing. I love her style because it has a futuristic vibe to it. I love the way she designs clothing to resemble armor. It's very unique and I don't see much of that which is why she really stands out to me.
