Etching Copper Bracelets

I've been working on etching copper bracelets this week and thought it might be fun to show you some of the process.  Pictured above are stamped bracelet blanks ready to go into the etching solution.

At this stage they've  gone through the etching process and have been cleaned up and shaped into cuff bracelets.  

They are almost finished here, they've been antiqued and polished and now need to be treated on the top side with ProtectaClear.  A metal sealer that will preserve the finish I've given them.  I leave them bare copper on the under side because some people use them for pain relief.

Not sure if you noticed but this is one of the finished bracelets from the first photo.

Thanks for visiting my blog today -
