Tidepools Along The Shore
Delightful orbs of frosted luminous glass in oceanic aquamarines and blues flow on a beautifully hand forged copper chain. I made this bracelet entirely by hand with copper. I hand fabricated the toggle clasp with copper sheet metal and created the texture with a texturing hammer. The toggle clasp is finished with a length of soldered chain. The beads are from Ghana and are made with recycled glass. They are made with glass bottles and other discarded glass items that are worked into a powder which is then placed into molds. The beads are fired in a kiln which is made out of termite mound clay that is fueled with crushed palm kernels. I antiqued the copper to create a patina which gives this bracelet a rustic and soulful beauty. The beads are 10mm-15mm. The toggle bar is 40mm L x 9mm W and the clasp is 22mm D. Excellent craftsmanship and copper strength assure that this bracelet is heirloom quality. With proper care it will last for generations. Copper has an ancient and warm beauty and it is beautifully affordable!
Bracelet Size - 8" L. A good fit for a small wrist because of the inner diameter.
One of a kind. You will receive the bracelet pictured here.
