breast cancer hope copper cuff bracelet with swarovski crystals

Details

This copper cuff bracelet is part of my breast cancer jewelry series in which 10 % of all of my breast cancer jewelry sales will donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This piece is a 1/2 wide etched copper cuff with the word "HOPE" etched into the center with a surrounding floral design and accented with Swarovski crystals. Please continue reading below if you wish to understand how my jewelry is accomplished.

I have loved art deco design all of my adult life. This handcrafted, one-of-kind 1/2" wide etched copper 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. Next step is to dip it into a liver of sulfur bath to oxidize it, adding definition and dimension to the design. I only keep a certain amount of the oxidation and rub off what I don't want. Then the embellishment fun begins! The deco period used many crystals and rhinestones in their designs. This piece has 14 Swarovski rhinestones in varying sizes. I glue with a two-part epoxy; the only glue I have to found to be satisfactory. It not only dries crystal clear like glass, but when I take my fingernail and try to scrape a crystal off, it doesn't budge, a problem I was having with all the "craft" glues on the market. 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: 1/2" wide, 6 " long. The metal can be bent to some degree to accommodate different size wrists. Thanks for looking!
