This unique copper cuff bracelet was created using multiple fabrication tools and techniques. A flat piece of copper was roll printed with a pattern, embossed with wire and then pressed in the hydraulic press. This technique gives this cuff the folded and flowing look of a wave. The bronze shells were formed with PMC and soldered to the base cuff. The metal cuff was then trimmed, dipped into a patina to darken the metal and finished to a soft matte. This process produces a beautiful bracelet that is one of a kind - no two cuffs ever look the same.
I use different metals in my work and love copper because of its natural color and the affects that can be obtained through patinas and heat. Fading, darkening or other signs of age are natural and unavoidable because of copper's characteristics. I do not coat these cuffs with lacquer or wax making the finish easy to clean and polish.
Creatively packaged in natural green moss or recycled craft paper, your cuff comes with cleaning instructions, a polishing cloth and a plastic bag with a 3M Tarni-Shield Protector strip to protect your cuff from tarnish when stored.
The benefits of wearing copper
It is said that copper bracelets have been used by many civilizations for thousands of years. Copper bracelets are found routinely by archaeologists during digs on ancient sites, and although little is known as to why the ancients actually wore the bracelets, speculation abounds. When copper is absorbed by the body by the use of a copper bracelet or wristband, the electrical and thermal properties and conductive effects the bracelet delivers supplies a similar form of relief as applying heat to the affected area.
The use of copper bracelets centers on reducing the joint pain and stiffness associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. For believers, this translates into more freedom of movement and joint flexibility. Although worn on the wrist, manufacturers report the bracelets are beneficial to stiff joints
