.SHARDANA.

Some of the first recorded uses of copper and brass were during the Bronze Age, 3300-1200 BC.  During that time, the Shardana people of the Mediterranean  region made complicated body armor called corselets; overlapping pieces of metal (copper and brass)  to protect the body during battle.  My bracelet is a tribute to a few of the techniques those ancient peoples might have used to create the armor.

Materials

.999 Pure Fine Silver and .930 Argentium Sterling Silver

Copper and Rich-Low Brass

Techniques

Riveting: An ancient universal cold connection joint.

Etching: An acid-cut design.

Sawing: A combination of relaxed, rhythmic fluid cuts using a blade specific to small scale work

Filing: Rounding and smoothing the shapes edge using the correct file, proper stoke and stable grip.

Dapping: Using wood die and punch to create the 1/4 hemisphere shape.

Tumbling: A mechanical burnishing to work-harden the metal and create the first of many finishes.

Hand Finishing: A series of materials used to create high luster and shine.  Over time, the brass and copper will gracefully age into a beautiful antique golden, red-brown finish.
