Brass Copper Cuff

About this design:

I made a copper bracelet where I cut out designs and so I figured why not use them for something else. I soldered the forms to a brass cuff I made and patina'ed it.

    The copper and brass combo are super and a great way to use up the “left-overs.”

    I do like it a lot! I am going to take metal smith class in October. The problem is: I do not have a place at home where I could do soldering. I cannot do it in my painting space as my paints and mediums highly flammable so…

    I had jeweler’s “desk” made for me (my stepfather made it) and I had space in my laundry room for it. It is lined with ceramic tiles and I have room for all my stuff – torch, pickle pots, bench pin, etc. Very Handy!

    And how about the ventilation? and would not be a torch fire hazard in the laundry? You probably have a large laundry room :) )))
    My husband promised to make me a space in the very large master closet we have for jewelry making and hammering but he will not let me use a torch there…

    I have plenty of room…plus windows that I can open and a screen door. the desk is no where close to the clothes, etc. Plus I have a utility sink which comes in very handy. It’s a very workable space!
