Hand Made with Copper and Gemstones
Driftwood Treasure Bracelet WIPs.
This bracelet design combines chunky leather, with textured copper sheet and two strings of semi-precious gem stones. The copper bar has been distressed using texture hammers, with a polished patina finish and a gloss varnish. The design is suited to a snug fit on the wrist to keep the chunky leather formed in a curve. This style is all about creating a layered Bohemian look, so that the bracelet can be worn any way around the wrist and still be of interest visually. The construction is the tricky part, to fit the bracelet to a particular size, in this version it’s size medium, 7 inches in length.
