Etching is a fun but time consuming process. You start out with sheet silver. You choose your pattern, in this case from my Indian design book, and print it on special paper. You burnish the design on to the heated metal and then peel off the paper. The silver sheet is then floated on an acid bath. The exposed metal gets etched with the selected pattern. After you have achieved a deep enough etch the silver is neutralized and the blue design is scrubbed off with a solvent.
I cut the piece out using a jeweler's saw. The piece was filed, sandpapered and polished to make it shiny and smooth. After forming on a bracelet mandrel the pattern was painted with patina to attain the blue and green color for accent.
Dimensions : 6 inches X 1 inch. Since it is an open ended cuff it should fit anyone.
