Hey guys! Just one going in the shop today. This was the "project" piece that gave me so much trouble. I replaced the copper around the center with an artistic design. I guess you can call that art. I like it, it's different. I was going to try silver with the copper like Sharon suggested but something didn't look right to me. I will try this idea on future projects though because I love the look of mixed metals. Thanks for the suggestion, Sharon!
Autumn Skies Copper Bracelet
So much glowing copper in this beautiful piece. Large Itasy jasper holds soft warm hues of gray, pink, and cream. Focal stone has artistically wound copper surrounding it which brings out the rust colored spots within the stone. Made with hammered copper washers that are connected with petite swirls and held together with a handmade clasp. All copper has been oxidized and hand polished to bring out the brilliant shine.
I'm really loving copper. I think it's so much easier to work with than silver I guess because it's softer. Plus, once it's oxidized and polished it seems to have so much luster to it. And you can't beat the price! That's an added bonus. I think you'll see many more designs with copper from me in the near future. And that warm rust colored glow would go perfect with fall colors. Perfect timing! What do you gals prefer? Silver, brass, or copper?
