Stamped Copper & Metal Flower Bracelet
(Patchogue, New York USA)
I’ve been playing with copper sheet for a while now and recently started experimenting with stamping. I made this bracelet by stamping spirals all over a 1/2″ wide by six” long piece of 24Ga copper sheet.
I decided it needed something, so I created a flower for the center. The flower evolved from two circles I had cut in different sizes.
Not knowing quite how to rivet yet, I made the spiral in the center to connect the circles. The spiral wire end was then cut close on the inside and actually riveted! I was playing it by ear and it worked!!! I did order some rivets online for the next project however.
