I love copper. It's warm and soft to the touch and reflects back your body heat. I also love etching copper. The results are always so satisfying to me.
I hand paint each cuff using a special metal paint that adheres to the metal. I apply it using toothpicks and ends of wire dipped in the paint and then I coat it three times with a glossy protective spray.
As I only make one of a kind pieces, Penelope is a one-off. Even though I did do a number of cat cuffs you won't run into anyone wearing a cuff just like this one in its shades of turquoise and reds. Note that the center cat is sporting a little bow tie! Cuffs are adjustable by spreading open and then pressing against your wrist until it's comfortable.
