LOVE Textured Copper Wide Cuff Bracelet

"A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is." -- Jim Morrison

Ah, good old unconditional love.  Something we should keep at the forefront of our minds.
 
I love creating jewelry with hidden (or slightly hidden) little messages to the wearer. Something the wearer may want to be reminded of when they glance down or adjust an necklace or bracelet.  
 
I created this cuff bracelet from two pieces of copper.  The interior piece was textured in a rolling milling then made to fit into the frame section.
 
I call it my "corn husk love" bracelet because the texture on the copper was made using a real corn husk.  Then I stamped the word "LOVE" into a little split in the design off to the side of the cuff.  There, but not overtly obvious.
 
After forming the bracelet, I filed, textured, polished and gave the piece a patina.

This cuff is about 2½ inches inside diameter.  it's about 1¼ inches tall.

There's the tiniest bit of wiggle room to make the cuff larger or smaller for its new owner.

Keep in mind that working the metal to fit your wrist is NOT the same thing as bending the metal back and forth each time you put the cuff on and take it off.

Once a cuff is fitted to your wrist, the metal should not be bending for you to get the bracelet off and on.
