A Bracelet…Maybe!!!

I stared at this piece of copper for several months…not sure where to take it.  While it is not one of my ‘favorites’…after doing all of the prep work and then waiting several hours for the etching process to be complete…I did not want to ‘mess’ it up.
 Thank you to Hollie Mion for teaching me how to use a jeweler’s saw…the design took quite a bit of trimming and retrimming. Love the deckle edges…hopefully, I can enhance that and still remove any rough areas.

This will be the focal piece. The copper is already forming a patina…the torch should speed the process along.

It is hard to tell if the three pieces will be to large to use as one bracelet. I may use them as focals on three bracelets or one large focal piece for a bracelet and two smaller focals on pendants…DECISIONS…DECISIONS!!!  I will know more after they have been formed on a bracelet mandrel.
