"Connecting to the wildness of nature has the ability to uplift, heal and sustain life."
The Nautilus is a little miracle from the sea. This fine silver bracelet is a reminder of the beauty of this complex marine mollusk.
SIZE AND DETAIL:
It's about 2/3" long and 2/3" wide. Each bracelet contains approximately 3.5 grams of fine silver. I handcraft each piece so weight may vary slightly. All my materials are recycled and/or natural. The band is solid sterling silver .925 and approx. 7" in length.
HOW IT"S MADE:
I made this fine silver piece using Art Clay Silver (PMC). .999 After I shape the piece, I fire it in my jewelry kiln for 2 hours at 1650 degrees. I give it a bath in patina, hammer and polish it to a high shine. Most of my jewelry is made to order but I usually craft them within a month or so of sale.
It's so easy! Fine silver doesn't tarnish easily, in fact I have a couple of pieces I haven't polished in a year or so. Just get a silver polishing cloth, when you notice a little change in the silver brilliance, just rub it with the cloth a few times! It will not disappoint.
