Copper Etruscan Bracelet, Copper Loop In Loop, Oxidized Copper
This copper bracelet is beautifully smooth and slinky. It's made from solid copper in a method recently known as loop in loop, but also known in history as etruscan weave or roman chain since it dates back centuries - it has been found in jewelry from the 4th century BC. The hand forged S hook is made of copper also. I have oxidized this bracelet to darken the interior and really accentuate the weaving of the links.
It is a long involved process to make a chain like this. I start with copper wire....then wind it around a mandrel to make a long spiral of wire. I saw this coil down the length of it to make hundreds of circular rings. The rings are each fused closed with a torch - no solder involved here - and then they are stretched into an oval and squished in the middle and curved into a loose "U" shape. These shapes are then woven through each other to form a chain - the finished chain is then pulled through a drawplate to even out its shape and form. Then, of course, a bunch of polishing and finishing.
The interior circumference of the bracelet is 7.25", so it could fit a wrist that measures 7 inches around if you like a snug fit, or smaller if you prefer a looser fit. The thickness of the bracelet is right about 1/4".

I will do my best to answer them as quickly as possible, usually within one day. Good communication is important, and I will always try to figure out the best solution for any issue that might arise.
I accept paypal and major credit cards. You do not need to have a paypal account in order to pay with a credit card, but paypal will process the transaction for me and I will never see your credit card number. If you do not have credit cards or a paypal account, please ask me about making other arrangements - money order or personal check - and we'll work it out to help you.
For countries other than the US, please send me a message and i will quote you a shipping cost, and then I will revise the listing so you are able to purchase outside the US. Other countries will be handled individually based on the value of the items shipped. I will only ship to other countries if it is within USPS and international customs regulations. If you are in another country and wish to order something, please be aware of your restrictions before buying. If I find I am not allowed to send jewelry to that country, I'll have to cancel the sale and refund your money.
Shipping won't happen until after the payment clears, so if you are paying with e-check through Paypal (instead of instant payment or credit card) it will usually take a couple days for your payment to clear before I can ship your item.
I package all jewelry in a gift box, but if you prefer to NOT have a gift box, please let me know when ordering, and I'll wrap your purchase safely in bubble wrap instead.
If you need other shipping arrangements, or if you are shipping as a gift to a third party, please let me know and I'll try to accommodate any requests, such as gift wrap or not including an invoice.
