copper disc linked bracelet accented with opaque ink and crystals

Details

I have loved art deco design all of my adult life. This handcrafted copper linked bracelet shows that influence. All my designs are original; I use no stamps, stencils or transfers of any kind. I first draw the design onto the copper cuff with permanent marker, sometimes starting over many times before I'm satisfied. It is then dipped into PCB Etchant Solution anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. When I'm happy with the amount of etch, the piece is then put into a baking soda bath to neutralize the etching solution. It is then cleaned of all marker using steel wool. Next step is to dip it into a liver of sulfur bath to oxidize it, adding definition and dimension to the design. I only keep a certain amount of the oxidation and rub off what I don't want. Then the embellishment fun begins! This bracelet has accents of gold, turquoise and green opaque ink, along with turquoise swarovski crystals. I love adding the crystals to my designs, as the deco period used many crystals and rhinestones in their designs. I glue the crystals on with a two-part epoxy; the only glue I have found to be satisfactory. It not only dries crystal clear like glass, but when I take my fingernail and try to scrape off a crystal it doesn't budge; a problem I was having with all the "craft" glues on the market. When all is said and done, I wax the piece with Renaissance wax to prolong the oxidation. Oxidation will happen eventually, so if you don't like that look a little with a jewelry polishing cloth will shine up the raised areas. This piece has three 3/4" discs and two 1" discs connected with copper chain. At the end is dangling a 1/2" disc which is signed and dated by me. The total length is 8", and can tighten up to 6 3/4". Thanks for looking!
