Copper Mandala Cuff with Turquoise
This rustic copper mandala bracelet is made with an adjustable brass cuff to fit all wrist sizes. An 8mm round turquoise cabochon sits in the center of this beautiful, leafy design. This detailed design is achieved by pressing 18 gauge copper sheet in a hydraulic press with a die. Several sessions of pressing, annealing & pressing again are needed to create a crisp impression. The cuff is then oxidized and polished to give depth to the design. It is then sealed with wax to resist oxidation. Regardless, copper will oxidize with wear, but is easily cleaned with a polishing cloth.
