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 modern fine silver earrings are made with corrugated silver sheet cut into the shape of a slender leaf. Once done, I applied a patina – this makes the recessed areas darker and creates a 2 dimensional look.
