The Air-Chased Rustic Copper Cuff
Rustic Copper Cuff is a popular product in my online shop and at stockists. I have made several Rustic Cuffs using air-chasing, fold-forming, embossing, etching and just pounding with textured hammers. I love making these cuffs and I really like wearing a rustic copper cuff, especially when dressing up for an event or function.
Today I am sharing some work in progress pictures and videos of the Rustic Copper Cuff FANTASY. I make the Fantasy cuff with copper pipe. I upcycle old copper pipe whenever possible, but can buy new pipe from my local hardware shop Harrison and Dunn in Stamford if necessary.
So far, I am pleased to say, I have made all the cuffs in the Fantasy range using recycled copper pipe.
And some videos of the annealing process from Instagram.
After the first round of hammering and air-chasing it is time to anneal before I hammer some (a lot actually!) more. This will happen several times as I beat the copper pipe more to achieve the final texture. I won’t bore you with lots of videos ???? I will just take photos each time I anneal. You will see the textures evolving each time. #coppersmith #womenincraft #airchasing #copperpipe #makingacuff #funwithcopper #lovewhatido #wip #workinprogress #metalwork #copperart #copperjewellery
