Sterling Silver and Bronze Plate Bracelet - 1
This delicate sterling silver and bronze bracelet is perfect for layering or can be worn on its own.
The focal of this bracelet is a hand made solid Bronze curved plate (2" x 1/2"). This piece started out as Bronze Clay (BRONZclay*). This clay was rolled, conditioned, stamped with a gorgeous flower design, curved, dried, refined and kiln fired for several hours. The resulting solid bronze piece was machine and hand polished to reveal a warm golden hue.
The plate is accompanied by large Sterling Silver cable chain, a handmade Fine Silver** heart, and Sterling Silver elements. The heart was made of Precious Metal Clay (PMC). The clay was rolled, textured, cut, dried, refined and kiln fired. The resulting Pure Silver heart was then antiqued and polished to reveal the pretty texture.
This piece is adjustable and should fit most wrists. It is designed to fit snugly but comfortably.
*BRONZclay consists of 11% tin, 89% copper, water and non-toxic binding materials. The binding materials vaporize completely during the kiln-firing process, leaving a solid bronze piece with a density 90% that of cast bronze. This precious metal is very hard and durable - making it perfect for jewelry!
**Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Precious Metal Clay is comprised of fine silver particles that are in a binder which burns away when fired in a kiln leaving only pure silver behind. This metal is gorgeous, and it is more resistant to tarnishing than sterling silver.
