art deco inspired, etched brass cuff bracelet, accents of crystals/ink
I have loved art deco design all of my adult life. This handcrafted, one-of-kind 1" wide etched brass cuff shows that influence. All my designs are original; I use no stamps, stencils or transfers of any kind. I first draw the design onto the copper cuff with permanent marker, sometimes starting over many times before I'm satisfied. It is then dipped into PCB Etchant Solution anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. When I'm happy with the amount of etch, the piece is then put into a baking soda bath to neutralize the etching solution. It is then cleaned of all marker using steel wool. Then the embellishment fun begins! I have added cobalt blue opaque ink with an overlay of leafing finish. Some of the blue ink shows through the leafing to give the piece a very vintage look. The deco period used many crystals and rhinestones in their designs. This piece has 27 cobalt blue Swarovski crystal rhinestones. I glue the rhinestones with a two-part epoxy; the only glue I have found to be satisfactory When all is said and done, I wax the piece with Renaissance wax to prolong the oxidation. Oxidation will happen eventually, so I am including with purchase a polishing pad to use when you feel the bracelet needs a little shine. Dimensions: 1" wide, 6 1/2" long. The metal can be bent to some degree to accommodate different size wrists. Last but not least, this piece is signed by me, the artist, GEN which you can see in picture #2. Thanks for looking!
