Description

Funky, yet classic, and one of my favs! I wanted this cuff to call to mind the lace adorning the sleeve of a victorian gown. This piece is full of wonderful, eye catching texture. The ruffle is crocheted in copper wire, the surface of which has been oxidied to achieve a black color. Crocheted into the ruffle are sparkling black seed beads. The cuff is crocheted from lavender silk thread, and fastens with three crocheted metal and bead buttons.

Metal ruffle measures approx. 1 3/4 inches wide by about 4 inches long. The cuff band measures 1 inch by 8.5 inches (end to end).

    I like it!. Do you treat the copper in any way after you complete it? I was just wondering since copper oxidizes so easily against skin. I get green just thinking about it.
