Copper sheet metal was hand cut and then embossed, sanded and given a color treatment in deep plum. Embossed black leather from leather scrap was upcycled to soften the back of the bracelet. After embossing the leather, it was dried, painted by hand and sealed. A polymer clay medallion was made by rolling out clay and then it was stamped, hand painted, cured and covered with layers of clear resin. To attach the resin piece to the front of the bracelet I torched copper wire to make head pins and threaded them through to the back side where I made an intricate wire wrapped secret for the wearer. Could be my favorite part!
The clasp was handmade from copper wire and polymer clay that was stamped, painted and sealed. Copper chain dangles from one side. Everything was shined, photographed and now delivered to your eyeballs to feast on!
The cuff photographed is an ‘in progress’ version. The final product as described above was sold before final photography could be completed.
