I can’t seem to stop making copper cuffs. The whole process of cutting the sheet, folding it into shape, hammering it, filing the edges smooth and making the clasp is such great fun!
My biggest decision is whether to oxidize it, leave it shiny, create a patina (what color/colors?), add beads, punch holes in it, add wire lacing, make it wide, make it narrow, add links to it or combine it with another metal (like a brass clasp). I’m sure I will come up with even more variations soon enough.
Perhaps I can etch into it, enamel it, paint on it. I would never have guessed how many versions I can come up with using this simple copper cuff and I’m still new at this!
