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.
Each spring I wait impatiently for the arrival of the birds back from their winter holidays. I stand at my kitchen door and scan for the robins that mark spring for me. I love birds and my yard is filled with feeders, bird houses and birdbaths. The Arrival of Spring has a number of different birds on it for those birdlovers out there like 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, The Arrival of Spring is a one-off. You won't run into anyone wearing a cuff just like this one.
