Artisan Copper ~


Lampwork Glass, Earthen Ware
and Copper Wire Wrapped Bracelet

I’ve handcrafted rustic links of copper wrapped
lampwork and connected each one together into
this very eclectic bead bracelet in fabulous rich
earth tones. This bracelet would beautifully
compliment an outfit in earthy neutral tones or black.

Lampwork glass was handmade by a fellow
Etsy artisan and boasts tones of rust, clay, mustard,
toffee, persimmon, brick red and camel with
touches of dove grey, cocoa brown and moss green.
Two of the glass beads are accented by the
artist with droplets of fine (.999 pure) silver.

Artisan bracelet is completed with handmade
copper chain, my artisan copper hook closure
and charm fobs of copper, lampwork, Mykonos
Greek Ceramic, agate and Nevada Turquoise.
Handmade copper chain has a fabulous hammered
texture and the links are soldered closed.
Mixed Metal Dangle Earrings

I’ve textured solid copper with my new pattern
that resembles etching (without harmful chemicals).
After texturing, the copper has been domed,
oxidized and tumble polished to an organic
satin sheen. These earrings are petite and
very lightweight, perfect for everyday wear.

Handcrafted dangles are paired with my
sterling silver minimalist ear wires. Ear wires
are handmade with 20g sterling silver, have been
oxidized and endlessly tumble polished for
strength and an organic satin sheen.
Just shy of 1 inch (24mm) in length;
copper disks measure ½ inch in diameter
