Copper cuff bracelet with fold-formed cross


Copper cuff bracelet with aged copper colour patina and fold-formed pattern

SKU: BRFC7 Category: Tags: , , , ,


Copper cuff bracelet with fold-formed cross pattern and aged patina.  Sold in a black presentation box.  The cuff is about 4cm high and oval so it sits better on your wrist.

I currently have two variations – large and medium.  Large is probably large for a female, large-medium for a male with a diameter across the widest part of 7.4 to 7.8cm.  Medium is 6.9 to 7.1cm across the widest part, so better for a smaller to medium wrist.

I’ve found the best way to put these bracelets on is to push the narrowest part of your wrist through the gap.  The other method that works is to twist the bracelet on/off.

The aged copper colour patina varies every time I make these.

I make these fold formed copper bracelets starting by cutting a rectangle out of sheet copper.  I fold the copper along the long centre line and hammer the fold.  To make the copper soft (and less brittle), I heat it up to anneal it.  After annealing, I open up the fold.  I then create the other folds the same way.  Once I have the fold lines, I cut the ends so they’re not square.  After this, I shape it into a bracelet using a mandrel.  Annealing gives a nice aged copper colour, but it rubs off.  So I clean the surface with pickle and polish it.  To get back the aged colour, I treat the bracelet with liver of sulphur solution.  This gives a more stable colour.  I finish it with a little wax and sign the inside.
