The cuffs are embellished with bronze flowers, patinaed brass stampings and flower or sea themed etching. Here are 4 I have finished.
|copper etched foldformed cuff with bronze hibiscus|
|brass bee on a brass etched cuff. The liver of sulfur patinaed this sort of blue/black/purple, and it turned out glossy....|
|another view...it's actually much darker, more like the photo above....|
|bronze posey on a copper foldformed and etched cuff|
|Brass free form cuff with mermaid head in the center. The patina is an iridescent blue/purple|
|Both sides of the cuff have the etched double mermaid tail|
I haven't assembled the leather ones yet, and time is running out. I accepted a job in LA and will probably be leaving this weekend or early next week....the copper etching/foldforming as well as the embellishments are all finished, but the assembly is not. .... after that they still need to be lacquered and waxed ......EEEEK!
So- I need to finish up the cuffs, clean the shop and pack everything away for while I'm gone, and get my DH well stocked with supplies for while i am gone.
Tomorrow i need to take Sookie into town to get her shots, and then come home to finish the laundry and MOW!
good thing I work best under pressure.......
