Etched copper plate bracelet

About this design:

Wow, today I try the very first time etching! I used 0,5mm copperplate, I etched that celtic design on the surface and then patinated the plate. I do like the result very much. Finally I did not know what to build from that and then suddenly it want to born as a bracelet with natural color leather stripes cord.


Copperplate, reindeer leather

    This is lovely! What did you use to resist the etching – permanent pens maybe? Etching is fun, but really messy, too :) .
