These beautiful pieces are individually created from copper clay with differently placed designs and unique patina treatments on each. They really are one of a kind and I was thrilled to bits when I saw that I’d get one to play with! I thought for ages over what to do with it, I wanted something that wouldn’t distract from it’s gorgeousness.
This is the component I received.. Mmmmmm!
Initially, I thought I thought it would look fabulous as a hammered cuff with curved edges to fit the curve of the component, but quickly realised I had no idea how to do that, so sticking with what I know, I went for some etching. I painted stop out fluid on the copper in a spiral design to match the component, etched and coloured it.
Rooting through my stash, I found some bits that matched the colours and brought out the lovely patina and added in some copper, shot silk and leather.
Once all the individual pieces were finished, I glued the silk to the leather, riveted the component to the copper and glued all the pieces together.
I love how all the colours compliment each other, but the beautiful component is still the main attraction!
