Copper Etched Neck Bangle, Copper Corset Ring

After Easter breakfast and dropping off Easter goodies to the grandkids - I came back to the studio - I put the heaters on before I left  - it was till cool-  44 F  or  almost 7 C -
Worked on the  etched collar some more - still trying to think of how I want to finish - maybe some wire wrapping  - dangles - not sure - kept hammering at it to shape it - decisions decisions

Then I decided time to get on the torch - and worked for a couple of hours on some beads
I put a small heater near my legs to keep warm - not too bad - but  going to keep working in the studio if I can  this week  no matter what the weather - I needed to practice and figure out what I want to do in the way of beads for finished necklaces and bracelets

Then I decided I wanted to make a copper corset ring - so proto time again  - cut up a scrap piece of copper, hammered and put some holes into it - annealed - -  a bit messy but next one will be better - a little straighter on the weaving


  1. That ring is cool! I've never seen anything like it. Great idea.

  2. That stuff looks regal. It's really cool how you can turn copper into a template for just about anything. You can etch designs, then cut it up into any shape and size, and it can function in a lot of ways. You have made quite a piece of work there. I’m glad that you shared it.
