Copper Anticlastic Bracelet
The rich reds, browns, golds, rusts, and hints of deep purple in this bracelet naturally occurs in copper when it is heated a certain way. The colors add to the beauty of the shape of this bracelet.
This bracelet harkens back to my childhood growing up in the Sedona area. I find the red rocks and the mountains sneaking into my work often.
This piece is entirely hand-fabricated of silver and copper. It was then blackened to intensify the raised design on the cuff.
I had this piece of agate for about four months before I came up with a design for it. The stone itself is thick yet translucent, and the unique pattern inside the stone called for an organic shape. The depth of the pattern seems like it’s moving forward, so I needed to make a piece thick enough to honor that movement—and at the same time I wanted light to pass through the stone while forming a substantial piece of silver. This definitely called for hollow work.
