Starry Night Mountain Cuff - Beautiful World Collection - Available in Brass or Copper
Quick Facts: This etched cuff, a Butterfly Sundries original design, features a starry night with a mountain view; it measures approximately 6 inches in length and 1 inch in width. It is adjustable and can be customized to comfortably fit the average-sized wrist. (The bracelet pictured is a sample only; yours will be made-to-order in copper or brass) The Story: I love mountain sunsets and stargazing. On some of my favorite date nights with my sweetheart we have gone up into the hills to watch meteor showers all night long. Once we stayed long enough to enjoy the sunrise. Moments and memories like these are magical to me. I find balance in nature and harmony in silence. So much of my inspiration comes from the world around me and this cuff is an expression of my appreciation for our beautiful world. Made from copper or brass sheet, this bracelet has been cut to size, had its rough edges smoothed, and then it was polished. The design was hand-rendered and then gently placed into an acid bath which ate away the undesired portions. Once taken from the bath it was washed, antiqued to bring out the beauty revealed by its ordeal, and hammered by hand into shape. Copper and brass do, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. It does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the beautiful colors to develop over time (occasional polishing will keep your bracelet shiny and new-looking, if desired). From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love... with all the attention you deserve! This item comes with a FREE white gift box, for your gift-giving pleasure! This bracelet is part of my exclusive Beautiful World Collection which supports Butterfly Sundries' March-May 2014 Featured Charity, Weed Warriors (they receive 10% of the sale profits), a Washington state charity dedicated to furthering and promoting a healthy environment! They work to inspire everyone to remove invasive weeds and protect the native habitat. Their Weed Warrior stewardship projects restore a healthy balance to the environment by removing invasive weeds and planting native species plants. *Please Note* The bracelet pictured is only a sample of the design; the one you receive, while of the same design, should be expected to have slight variations from the one you see pictured.
