DRAGON'S BREATH ENAMELED BANGLE is enameled with a lovely shade of bright orange opaque and ruby red transparent enamels and would look great with jeans or dressier clothes for a night on the town. This bracelet is quite durable and has a nice weight and feel to it. Combine with other enameled bangles from Charmed I'm Sure for a happy jingly sound!
DRAGON'S BREATH evolved after receiving a few pieces of torch-cut copper strips as an "extra" in an order from a supplier of cut copper strips. I discovered how beautiful the new material I had received looked when formed into a bracelet, riveted, and enameled! The appearance and texture of the copper ridges and bumps are quite pleasing and unique!
The bracelet pictured is the one you will receive, not a copy. DRAGON'S BREATH is one-of-a-kind!
Enameled front & back in my studio, DRAGON'S BREATH was made from highly durable heavy-duty, hand cut & enameled copper, and kiln-fired enamel.
My wearable enameled art pieces are strong enough to resist bending, chipping or cracking of the fine glass enameled coating.
DRAGON'S BREATH measures approximately 7\/8 TO 1 inch wide, and 2 1\/2 inches in diameter. It will fit nicely on average-sized hands\/wrists. If the width at the base of your fingers is approximately 3 inches across (give or take a bit), then this bracelet will be perfect!
Originally inspired by a class entitled "Enamel on Copper Jewelry" taught by Richard Salley at the 2008 Art & Soul Retreat in Portland, Oregon, I have further pursued the fine art of enameling. In addition, I am extremely fortunate to be able to study under Averill Shepps, a world famous enamelist. Averill's work can be seen at http:\/\/www.enamelist.com\/ and also at http:\/\/www.torpedofactory.org\/galleries\/enamelists.htm
I have also been working with George Waricher, an enamelist for over 30 years, from the Carlisle, PA, Arts Center.
My enameled bracelets can also be purchased at the Village Artisans Gallery in historic Boiling Springs, PA. ~ http:\/\/www.villageartisansgallery.com\/
As an artist, I have found enameling to be particularly empowering, allowing me much variety in color, shape, & texture. It is not unusual to have the raw metal material guide me to its end form. It is truly thrilling to experience the results of combining glass powders and copper or steel after firing in a 1500 degree kiln. No two pieces are exactly alike & each creation has a special gleaming personality of its own!
