Each plus shaped piece of tin is hand cut, distressed and laid out on the copper sheet. Working from one corner, I punch teeny tiny holes and then rivet each piece to secure it to the copper.
Once all the pieces are married together, I file and finish the edges and back so that they are smooth. Bending the whole piece into the cuff shape and refining the bits of tin is the final step.
The finished bracelet is about 2” (48mm) wide and 6” long.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
I’ve recently partnered with the non-profit One Tree Planted. $1 from your order today will plant a tree somewhere on the globe.
