This listing is for a CUSTOM alchemical cuff design similar, in which symbols and designs are chosen by you or I can pick for you. I like to make deep etches (as shown),they are more visually striking. The one pictured has already sold to another customer, but if you like I can make one for you as close as possible to the one shown, or you can change the symbols out to something you choose.

Every Cuff is one of a kind and MADE to ORDER in my studio from copper.
Because this is a custom item, please allow 14 days for production before shipment. If you have questions please convo me first.

Drawn, Etched, Cut and Finished in my studio out of copper sheet. Recessed areas are blackened to bring out the contrast of the lines. Made from 16g copper plate. 100% original/ one of a kind/ handmade~ you can even see in some places where my fingerprints actually were etched into the metal.

Every copper cuff is sealed with lacquer. This prevents the finish and protects your skin from the green staining of the skin that happens to some. Though the sealer is preventative, with humidity and constant wear, the sealer may wear through this can be fixed with clear nail lacquer. Greening is natural and not an indication of an allergic reaction. You can apply clear nail lacquer to the piece in thin coats if you need to touch it up and this will act as a renewable barrier that you can reapply if necessary.

Process:
free hand drawing directly to the plate
etching
sawing out the form from the plate
filing down rough edges
hammering around a form to make it fit wrist comfortably
oxidizing (blackening and applying patina)
sanding (to bring out relief of raised lines)
sealing (to retain oxidation and patina)

Frequently asked questions about JamieSpinello

MADE TO ORDER ITEMS: Most of my items require approximately 2-3 weeks for production by hand before shipment and are made to order. Production requirements for my pieces vary from design to design, because of different processes involved. The estimated time required before shipment can be found under the "shipping & polices" tab and on the invoice after purchase.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS:
If an item states it is "READY TO SHIP", it will be shipped in 1-3 business days.

MULTIPLE ITEMS IN ORDER: Orders containing multiple items may take longer than the estimate. I encourage customers to contact me with questions if they are hoping to meet a deadline for gift giving or receipt. Please contact me with any concerns!
For all of my items it is a good idea to avoid harsh cleaning chemicals and or extended periods of submersion in water. Most metals oxidize and react to being exposed to acids in household cleaners, shampoos, and even face wash. To prolong the life of your jewelry, I suggest that you keep your pieces in a dry place (hanging up if a necklace) and to avoid over exposure to water and chemicals.
All of my work ships from my studio in Austin, Tx.
I use a wide array of processes for creating my work. All of my pieces are made in my studio. I forge, solder, fabricate, cast, carve, etch, and weld everything myself in my studio in Austin, Tx. I do not outsource, when you buy from me, you buy my original real hand made work made in my studio.
I do accept custom requests and personalized orders. Please shoot me a message first so we can get started. I am not able to accept all custom requests at all times, so please contact me first to find out my availability. Thank you.
I am happy to share the evolution of my work over the years. You can take a peek at some of the first designs I sold on Etsy by checking out my reviews which go all the way back to 2009: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JamieSpinello/reviews?ref=pagination&page=78
