Copper cuff bracelet with hammered swirl design

BR801

With swirling waves on copper, this cuff bracelet combines the timeless appeal of radiant warm copper, the peaceful flow of swirling waves, and a handmade antiqued appearance.

The blank was cut as a 1 cm wide strip of copper from impressively thick 2 mm or 14 gauge copper to produce a bracelet of significant thickness and sturdy structure. To create those swirling waves, the flat copper was hammered on a steel patterned block to imprint the metal with the design before hammering the patterned flat 14 gauge copper strip over a wooden mandrel with a nylon mallet and slightly rounded the end tabs for a classy look. The bracelet was finished by being placed outside in the damp wet weather for a few days to develop natural oxidation and then gently polished with a series of soft buffing cloths to reveal the surface copper on the swirls while leaving the oxidation in the grooves for contrast and depth.

The bracelet measures 6 inches long and can be adjusted to fit a 6 to 7 inch wrist, however you may order your bracelet in any size by entering your requests in the check out notes. There will be a short wait time for bracelets larger than 7 inches as the larger copper sheets are a special order.
