Copperista is the place for handmade ornaments, jewelry, framed mirrors, desk picture frames & wall picture frames and decorative buttons all made of copper. Here you will also find personalized ornaments and copper jewelry. Each and every piece that you see in this shop has been designed and constructed by me.

I start with sheet copper that is cut, sanded, given a patina and lots of other surprises. I learned to cut glass/mirrors to make these and that's not as easy as it looks!

If you see something here that strikes your fancy, and would like it a little tweaked, different shape, size, etc. shoot me a convo and we can chat. If you'd like a date, initials, message on one of these, I can do it. Customization is my speciality in my other shop, so I can certainly try to accomodate.

And please visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/aquabeet my original Etsy shop.

About

C O P P PE R

Jewelry started it all. Way back when I was a small person, I would hatch plans for designs & make them out of paper, pebbles, shells, string, artificial flowers, anything I could get my hands on. I also deconstructed some of the jewelry that I was given & reassembled them to fit my aesthetic.

A young life of art adventures lead me to become a graphic designer, setting type & designing logos. I also worked with papier-mache, designed handmade greeting cards, made quilts and painted furniture before I started with metals.

After working with sterling silver in my first Etsy shop: www.aquabeet.etsy.com for a few years, I stumbled upon some copper and started playing with it. Copper is the most wonderful metal, it is soft and takes on the most wonderful random colored patinas when heated. It's the randomness that I love!

I am a one woman operation. I do every bit of this myself. Wholly self taught in silver and copper, I love what I do, everyday!

copperista is my 2nd Etsy shop. My first is: https://www.aquabeet.etsy.com. Stop by and say hi!

    I have been an artist all of my life. I don't remember a time when I wasn't. I pretty much always have a plan for making several things in my head at once. Sometimes I get the best ideas in the middle of the night.

Welcome to my 2nd Etsy shop. This is where I am selling my copper pieces that I design and make from scratch.

I have been an artist all of my life. I don't remember a time when I wasn't. I pretty much always have a plan for making several things in my head at once. For years I worked as a graphic designer, setting type, designing logos and such. I used to make and sell papier-mache pieces & handmade greeting cards before I started with metals.
I still make quilts & paint furniture when not working. I've been selling on Etsy since March 2008 in my first shop - aquabeet, which has been great.
