Etched Copper Cuff - Alchemical Symbols - Book of The Dead - symbols of transformation - Customizations available upon request

★MADE TO ORDER - I will make one as close to the original one I made, which is shown.

I have been obsessed with ancient Egyptian culture since I was a child and I am fascinated by their ideograms, emblems and the way they visually communicated stories and beliefs. The "Ouroboros" or "Chrysopoeia" snake emblem was first used in ancient Egypt. It is representative of life constantly renewing and living in balance. Unlike the modern western negative association with snake images, the snake image was often an image used in mythology and stories to represent healing, overcoming hardships, and the cycle of life in general in ancient times. I have also written "you live" in hieroglyphics on the sides of the cuff. I love the idea of looking at ancient practices, texts and religious books and seeing how old cultures and ideas still apply today.


★NOTE★This item is MADE TO ORDER and requires 2 weeks for production by hand in my studio. Please keep this in mind when ordering. I do have a variety of "Ready to Ship" items to choose from that you can see here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/jamiespinello?section_id=14624658

All other items in my shop require production time before shipment.

I also make custom etched cuffs upon request:
Some ideas for a custom cuff would be a family seal, coat of arms, tribe symbols, shaman symbols, dates, personal symbols etc. I draw and design the arrangement of the symbols etch, cut and form the cuff . Each are 100% handmade and one of a kind. The etch is very deep so unless it is run over or melted down will last essentially forever. You can also order a cuff with animals / plants / portraits but must talk to me first to see if your idea would be a good fit for the etching process that I use. If you like the exact cuff pictured, I can always make one similar, but no two will ever be exactly alike.

Each cuff is drawn and etched by me from drawings in my sketchbook or to specifications of the customer, no two are exactly alike. If you like I can replicate a similar design like the one pictured, however I recommend that you pick a few meaningful symbols and imagery for yourself.

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.
