Hello, I'm a longtime lurker, so I decided to de-lurk and post some jewelry projects.  This first one started life as a copper sheet:



I formed it using a hydraulic press after texturing the metal, filed and sanded the edges, then patina-ed the metal using white oak sawdust and some household chemicals.  Here are 2 more, a brass and a copper bracelet after the patination process:



Last step was to add the beads.

Regards,
Carla

Very cool!  The beads you chose go so nicely with the cuff.  Smiley  I'm not big on bracelets but I'd definitely wear this.
