Embodying free spirit artisan craftsmanship melded with rustic Southwestern Flair, this copper cuff bracelet was crafted using handmade Native American Metal Stamps to inspire the creative energy of crafting as a central design element made possible by the fusion of hand carved rail ties and rebar in the skilled hands of a Navajo master and our passion for jewely.
Each single design element making up the pattern represents a single strike of the metal stamp with a hammer to create an impression deep in the flat bracelet band. After completion of the imprinted design, the band is shaped into a bracelet by tapping over a wooden mandrel using a nylon mallet. Finished with a series of polishing cloths after the application of the black patina to darken the grooves, the copper brought to near mirror finish.
As photographed, the bracelet accommodates a medium wrist and measures 10 mm wide x 2 mm thick. Small adjustments in sizing can be made by bending to open and close the gap or you can order your bracelet with a custom fit by simply indicating your wrist or bracelet size in the order notes.
