I just adore working in copper and brass. It has a such a warm and organic feel to it. I created this brass bracelet with heating and patina and texture. I have finished it off with a hand rubbing of wax.
The centerpiece is a ammonite fossil with pearl that is set in sterling silver. I have given it an organic wire wrapped with forged and antiqued copper wire.
To enhance the natural tones I have added finishing touches of real pearls and seashells, bone and more beads interwoven with brass wire. Red glass beads and cherry quartz add a pop of color. The woven centerpiece measures 2 1/4" high x 3" wide. The width of the bracelet is 1 1/2" wide. The bracelet measures 5 1/2" inside with a 1 1/4" opening. It is adjustable.
