This peice is made from ONE 6x6 peice of copper, all cut with a jewelers saw- no peices are dropped out, etc, the entire cuff is connected.



Black patina for an antiqued finish.  An unusal peice for me since I work mostly wih fiber, but interesting.  The peice actually fits my wrists (5.5 inches)- though I wouldn suggest it (without some help), as it is designed as a torture peice.

There's a really large pic of it here:

I just thought of her because of the feature on her I read in Art Jewellery Magazine in May which also had a challenge on shaping a 6X6 piece of copper without removing any parts... which is basically what you did here.  I was wondering if you saw the article.

I'm not sure if these are the best links, but here they are anyway:

O very cool.  I hadnt seen it, but the teacher did mention getting the idea from something similar, so it might have been from that article.

I took a class from her last year, she is the greatest.  Her work is so beautiful and she is so accessable as a person.
