Turquoise mermaid bracelet, green and etched copper, 7 3/4 inches long

Item Description

This bracelet measures just over 7 3/4" long (20cm) and features a handcrafted copper etched component with a mermaid drawn by artist Cynthia Thornton. 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 turquoise beads with metal edges.

The toggle clasp and small copper beads are made from copper-plated lead-free pewter. The jump rings are made of antiqued copper and enameled copper.

The etched component measures 1 1/8" across (28mm). It should give you years of enjoyment. If the lacquer ever wears off, it can be easily touched up with clear nail polish.
