Handcrafted copper leaves envelop one another to form this unique cuff bracelet. A technique known as "fold-forming" creates the dramatic centre vein of each leaf. Hammered and formed to create depth and texture, the bracelet has a high polish and shine to reflect the light. Each leaf is approximately 1-1/2" wide; each leaf is hand drawn on copper, cut, sanded and shaped, and therefore, each individual leaf is unique from the one next to it.
Sizes: Fits size 6-1/2" to 7-1/2" as the bracelet can be gently tightened or loosened for your preferred it. Custom sizes are available on request. The bracelet can also be made in brass as a custom order.
Packaging: All items are packaged in the appropriate size white leatherette box and will be wrapped for safe shipment to you. See photo.
Metal - Copper tarnishes naturally to a darker hue. The bracelet has been coated with a lacquer to maintain the shine but this coating is not permanent.
Metal and Skin Discoloration - People are not allergic to metal; metal reacts to you, your skin, sweat, natural oils, and lotion or perfumes put on the skin. On some people copper leaves a dark grey discoloration, yet on others, it may appear green. This discoloration is not permanent (it washes off) and varies from person to person (the copper reacts differently on different people).
CARE - use a soft jewelry cloth to clean and shine the metal. Avoid abrasive scrubbing or strong detergents! Periodically soak the entire piece in 4:1 ratio Mr. Clean (or gentle substitute) and lukewarm water for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with clean water and dry.

STORE your jewelry in a zip-locking type bag once completely dry. You can add a small charcoal type pouch to keep humidity away if you live in more humid climates. These are the types found in shoe boxes, purses, etc.
