Sterling Leather Bracelet - Textured Silver - Silver Charm Bracelet - Handmade Charm

Adorn yourself in simple, contemporary style with this sterling silver and leather bracelet. This bracelet has been made with 100% recycled sterling silver, round leather cord and stainless steel wire.

The central design element in this piece has been textured using the complex technique of etching. The linear, organic texture on the surface of this piece actually began as an ink drawing on paper. I then scanned this drawing into photoshop, inverted the colours, printed the new image onto clear transparency paper, transferred the printer ink onto a sheet of silver and then submerged the silver in a bath of acid. The printer ink acted as a resist to the acid, which allowed the metal to be dissolved and eaten away by the corrosive acid. Through this process, I was able to convert my original drawing to a wearable piece of art.

The recessed textures have been oxidised to create dramatic contrast between the image and the polished silver. The round, textured shape has been lightly domed with a convex curve. The leather cord feeds through a round bail underneath the dome and can move freely up and down the cord.

This bracelet features an easy to use hook clasp that has been fabricated using stainless steel wire.

The domed feature measures .7" (18mm) across. The length of this bracelet measures 7.8" (20cm). The round leather cord measures .12" (3mm) thick.

I have many pieces in my shop that feature this unique texture, so be sure to check the rings and necklaces!

I use only 100% Recycled metals to create my jewelry. The metals I use are refined from metal that has already been extracted from the earth, such as jeweler' scraps and what would other wise be industry waste. This means that landscapes aren't destroyed, that the people that live on mineral-rich lands aren't displaced and that eco-systems aren't polluted by the dirty processes of mineral mining in order to make my craft. All packaging, printing and gift wrapping is also made with recycled materials and a deep respect for our environment.
