The Spine bracelet is one of the first designs we came up with when we started foldforming copper jewelry several years ago. The intricately folded copper looks like leather or cloth, while the central spine fold yields a Gigeresque vertebral look. This silver-lined version was honored with a Jurors' choice award in the 2021 Lewton-Brain International Foldform Competition.
The foldforming process is done over many rounds of heating, folding, clamping, hammering, reheating, unfolding, and reheating again. The copper emerges from this with a finely variegated honey-brown finish. The brown version of the bracelet stops there. The green version is carefully dry-brushed with our traditional blue-green verdigris patina while lightly heating the copper again.
This version of the Spine bracelet is upgraded by being wrapped in a liner of Argentium Sterling silver. Argentium is a modern alloy with higher silver content than traditional sterling, but with an addition of Germanium, which results in a silver which is very slow to tarnish.
Every bracelet is different, and they are made upon order. They should ship within two weeks. The foldforming process determines the width, resulting in a range from 1.6-1.9 inches in width.
ATTENTION: When ordering, please let me know your wrist measurement. If you do not have a flexible or dressmaker's tape measure, wrap a strip of paper around your wrist, mark it, and then unroll it flat and measure with a ruler.
