Bits + Baubles: Copper Wrap

my first handmade copper wrap bracelet!

This whimsical copper cuff was a project of mine in my first metals class and has since been a favorite.  You can’t really tell in this photo, but I etched large diagonal stripes on the surface, while giving a hammered texture to some of the “appliqued” pieces.  Chalcedony, amethyst, and a freshwater pearl bring color to this textured little work of art.  Pieces like this are why I so want to get my torch hooked up again!
