Etched Copper Cuff Bracelet.











After recieving Tim Holtz's new alterations dies from Blue Bazaar the other day, I knew straight away that I wanted to make a cuff bracelet. The only thing was, would it cut through my 24 gauge copper sheet. Yes it does. (though it may damage your die, it didnt mine, though beware)
Once I had die cut the copper, I got on with metal etching using a Technique Tuesday and one of Tim's scroll stamps for the design. Once the etching was complete, I gently bent the copper and one of Tim's ornate bookplates. (another beware they do break easy when trying to be bent), added a Collections pic and filled it with Ice Resin (which if your in Australia) you can buy it from my dear friend and Australia's sole distributor Jen Crossley. And 'viola' cuff made.
Love Sarah
