Anticlastic Antique Finish Copper Cuff
Individually handcrafted patterned copper cuff bracelet with antique patina.
Copper blank for this cuff was cut from sheet copper, I then added a scratched lines pattern to it and put it into a Ferric Chloride solution to etch the pattern. The image below shows this and some other cuffs ready for the etching treatment.
After etching I cleaned the black gunky resist off the copper sheet and the copper piece was then shaped as an anticlastic cuff and given an antique finish using Liver of Sulphur.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary Definition of anticlastic: having opposite curvatures at a given point. Anticlastic shape is formed by hammering a flat sheet of metal so it forms two near identical upward curves in opposite ways.
The Copper cuff is a standard fit at approximately 6 inches, Width 2.1 cm.
Please Note: Most of my copper designs have been given an antique, flame or colour patina. However, copper will continue to darken naturally over time as it reacts with the oxygen in the air. Personally, I feel, this natural oxidation process gives your item an ageless, timeless look which is part of the charm of individually handcrafted copper pieces.
Please note: Different monitors/screens do show colours differently depending on your settings. All images are as close a match to the original piece as possible through the eyes of a camera lens, on our computer screens.
