Etched nickel silver pieces were cold connected/riveted to the etched copper bases using micro screws & balled rivets. Each section is connected with sterling silver links. The clasp is hand forged.
These are just FUN! Brass, nickel silver, copper and silver…..all different shapes, colors & textures. You can wear these with everything!
When I am able to capture every tiny vein in an intricate leaf……I love the end result. This cuff is earthy & delicate at the same time!
Each copper square is etched with a different leaf or tree pattern….each delicate detail…The red color is part heat from my torch & the reaction of the salt from the etching & the metal. The links & clasp are fine silver.
My ongoing love of all things “leaves” inspired this cuff. I learned a new method to etch copper that shows even the smallest of details, so tried this intricate leaf & it turned out beautifully! The cuff is very light & very comfortsble to wear.
These copper earrings were etched first and then given a mat white glaze. After rubbing it off to show the beautiful etched design, I added to amethyst stones.
These earrings hang about 2 ” long. The copper has been etched with a floral pattern & then enhanced with a verdigris patina. Small crystals dangle from the bottom. The ear wires are copper.
