Copper Charms Beads Stamped Dolphin Sea Turtle Handmade Oxidized

I stamped three blank copper pieces with dolphins and sea turles to create these charms. The copper was heat oxidized to acheive the interesting patina. The darkened stampings were the result of oxidation, no ink was used. The round charm was a copper washer while the two rectangular shapes were blanks where I softened the sharp corners. I drilled holes in all three pieces. A light coat of lacquer sealed the metal and gave it a nice shine. Notice that these are small pieces as indicated in the picture with the standard business card.

The fronts and backs are pictured. Oxidation creates a similar, but different patina for each piece.

The round washer charm has a dolphin on it and has a 5/8 inch (1.58cm) diameter. The rectangle shape charms were stamped with dolphins on one and sea turtles on the other. They are 15/16 inch (2.38cm) long and 1/2 inch (1.27cm) wide.
