A genuine turquoise nugget is highlighted between thick copper wire forming this medium sized bangle bracelet. Copper wire was hammered to form textures, annealed by torch to make the wire more pliable, shaped by plastic hammers, soaked in acid solution, and process repeated until the bracelet was formed. The turquoise nugget was riveted between the copper wires for a secure fit.

The copper has been given a clear laquer coat to retard oxidation that darkens copper. Do not dip in acid cleaners. Can be lightly hand polished with a silver polishing cloth.
