Breathe in the moment bracelet, rust red fossil coral beads and etched copper, two strand, phrase jewelry, 7 3/4 inches long

Item Description

This bracelet measures 7 3/4" long (19.5cm) and features a handcrafted copper etched component with the phrase "Breathe in the moment" from poet Cristina Norcross and a pattern from an antique bookplate. I've etched the design into solid copper sheet metal with ferric chloride, then patinaed it, tumbled it, hand polished it, and sealed it with a permanent clear lacquer. Etching is a process that has been used for centuries to create gorgeous designs in metal.

I have paired the etched copper component with green rhyolite beads.

The toggle clasp is made from copper-plated lead-free pewter. The jump rings are made of antiqued copper and enameled copper. I've used antiqued copper wire to securely link the bracelet together.

The etched component measures 2" across ( and it is curved slightly to fit the wrist. It should give you years of enjoyment. I have sealed the front and back of the component with a permanent lacquer. However, due to the nature of wearing a bracelet, the lacquer might wear off the back of the component from friction. If the lacquer ever wears off, it can be easily touched up with clear nail polish.
