Gorgeous Olive Green Enamelled Salvaged Copper Bracelet
Enamelled Salvaged Copper bracelet made from Upcycled copper sheet.
The copper for this bracelet was salvaged from a copper tank that a kind plumber gave me a while ago. The copper sheet was thoroughly cleaned, pickled and scrubbed several times to get rid of all the gunk that years of being a copper tank created.
Initially I made this particular piece as a fold formed cuff but I felt the piece wasn’t strong enough as a cuff bracelet so it was cut up and re-crafted as a bracelet with a hook & eye clasp.
The gorgeous olive green enamel really enhances the textures, ridges and folds. I do like it a lot!
Size: Bracelet is 7.5 inches (19 cm) long with a copper hook clasp made from 1.25mm pure copper wire. The width of the copper shapes is approximately 2.75 cm.
Colour: Transparent Olive Green
Back of the bracelet is not enamelled, it has been given an antique patina.
I am having so much fun with coloured enamel. It really is an added bonus that my customers are liking my new range of colourful copper jewellery. It really has added a new dimension to my work and there is a lot more to come!
