Dragonback bracelet - hand-forged copper 'dragonhide' bracelet
No dragons were harmed! This is the vegan version of dragonhide - hand-forged copper sheet forming a bracelet with draconic dorsal ridge spines. Great for everyday wear but will also add just that extra touch to a LARP or con costume or other cosplay designs. One of the first comments we got on these was that they looked like something Daenerys Targaryen would wear. But it would look just as good on any dragon hunter, dragonrider, or dragon handler.
This bracelet is patinaed using copper nitrate for a verdigris effect. We patina our work hot, using a torch, to achieve best coverage, adhesion, and better consistency of color. This bracelet's patina has been antiqued by going over it with a wire brush before sealing the patina with spray acrylic.
These cuff bracelets can be flexed and reshaped to a certain extent to get it to fit your wrist, but it should not be opened and closed each time you put it on, or it will eventually weaken.
This bracelet will fit a medium-to-small woman's wrist measuring 5½ to 6 inches/13.5 to 15cm around (measure with a dressmaker's tape, or with a strip of paper - mark it then unroll and measure flat), and may work for wrists slightly larger or smaller. The actual dimensions are 2.2 by 1.6 by 1.3 inches along the spine, and the opening is about 1 inch (55 x 40 x 58 mm, 25mm opening).
Every bracelet will be different in shape, size and patina, but I would be happy to make you a similar one (or a pair!). Contact/convo me to discuss it more.
