Copper Cuffs - Air-Chased & Fold-Formed

Copper Cuffs - Air-Chased & Fold-Formed

Last week-end I spent some time making more one-off copper cuffs. It was a LOT of fun :-) And the finished pieces have definitely put a smile on my face. I hope you like them too! 

I made a series of social media posts as I crafted these pieces. This is what I plan to do with all new work I create so you might want to follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see pictures of my work as they happen. I have copied the posts I made below with the images.  

All three Cuffs have now been added to my shop and can be purchased on-line. I accept commissions and will be happy to create a piece for you. If the size you want is not available the shop please do get in touch to have a piece made especially for you.

Fold Formed and Air-Chased cuffs are individually crafted in my studio and no two pieces are ever identical.

I have also started a fold-formed cuff bracelet.

2 Cuffs ready for pickle.

I have some copper pipe I want to work on next so I will get back to this later.

3 copper cuffs and a pendant in the pickle pot getting cleaned.

I will take these out in a few minutes and make it nice and shiny using a wire brush and then think about patina

Weekend work just out of liver of sulphur.

Now I will spend some time buffing and cleaning and then they will be ready

And finished!

I am so pleased with the new cuffs I made over the weekend
