Dancing Women Etched Cuff - Available in Brass or Copper - Dancing Women Collection
Quick Facts: This etched cuff, a Butterfly Sundries original design, features the silhouettes of women of all shapes, sizes and abilities dancing; 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.) The Story: I've always found the act of dancing to be empowering. As a child I loved it- but as I became older I gave up the passion because of the opinions of others. I believe beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and abilities and all people have the right to self-expression. Not only that, but all versions of beauty deserve to be equally celebrated; visibility matters! It was that belief which helped to shape my desire and intention to create a line of jewelry for Butterfly Sundries celebrating the diverse beauty represented by all women, of all shapes, sizes and abilities. 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! As always, 10% of the sale profits are donated to my Featured Charity! *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.
