Malachite Funk II

The matching bracelet for the previous earrings... I have hand wrapped the malachite stones and copper filigree beads with copper wire and added two hand wrapped brass beads to the ends to balance the weight of the stones. For a chain maille accent, I have hand woven two sections of Byzantine link with copper rings and placed them on the sides of the bracelet. It finishes with a secure copper lobster clasp.

The great thing about copper is that it slowly oxidises over time with exposure to your skin and the air. Your own piece of copper jewellery will take a unique patina as you wear it. I love it because it is personal to the wearer!
