I was wondering what my next project would be. My eyes watched the sunny landscape outside my window, and suddenly I was happy and creative, and the idea of hammering Silver cuff bracelets entered my mind. I cried “WOW” and could not wait until I sat at my work table and began to hammer wide strips of silver to the shapes I had in my mind.Like John Lennon, ( hope he will forgive the comparison, up there, where he is now)  I did not believe in fashion, I did not believe in “will it sell?”, I did not believe in “the materials are too expensive these days”. I have just believed in me! (high time!)This is the first one:https://www.etsy.com/listing/181353957/wide-hammered-cuff-bracelet-silver?ref=shop

When I say “Hammered” I mean – by using the Repoussee technique – hammering the Silver in a bowl of pitch. As I love rounded shapes the inspiration was of waves of flower petals.

The second Cuff Bracelet is a very long snake with a twirl in the middle of his body which is on one end, and his head and tail, almost meet, on the other.

Store all precious metal jewelry in a zip lock bag to protect it.

This does not stop the discoloration, but will drastically slow the process.

Use a polishing cloth as needed for cleaning your jewelry.

Jewelry with semi−precious stones and crystals:

Store all jewelry with semi−precious stones and crystals in a zip lock bag to protect it.

Check the instructions on your jewelry cleaning solution prior to placing any items with stones in it to

be cleaned. Some stones, such as turquoise and freshwater pearls, cannot be placed in most jewelry

cleaning solutions.

 

  • Do not wear your jewelry when you are washing dishes or showering.
  • Use caution when wearing lotions and perfumes, for they will discolor gems such as turquoise.
  • Pearls: Special care should be taken with pearls. They are much more fragile than most gemstones.
  • Be cautious when using hairspray and perfumes. Let them dry completely before donning your pearls.
  • Cleaning pearl jewelry: Wipe with a clean dry soft cloth after wearing them.

 

Thank you for your time.
