dolphin turtle starfish copper bracelet sea inspired, a photo by greensladejenny on Flickr.
I have just listed in our Folksy Jewellery and Gift shop this solid copper oxidised turquoise charm bracelet.
Although i originally started my jewellery journey with beaded necklaces i am finding metalwork and metal stamping techniques lots of fun and have started making oxidised jewellery more often to create unusual designs.
This bracelet has been oxidised with liver of sulphur and all beads wirewrapped for security. I used turquoise howlite and amber and turquoise crackle glass beads and then made copper charms from copper sheet metal and stamped them with dolphin,sea turtle and starfish and hammered the other 3.
Quite a bit of work goes into making these rustic style bracelets but they look gorgeous at the end.
PATIENCE Is my top tip for the day.
