Etched copper and sterling silver ring, size 7
This is a hand fabricated copper ring, fitted with a sterling silver liner or "sleeve" to add a touch of elegance and to protect your fingers from turning green. A hand-drawn pattern was transferred to copper sheet by a process called etching. The copper band was then sawn, formed, and soldered close with hard silver solder, a tiny silver seem is visible on the copper part. The silver liner was cut and formed from sterling sheet, the two rings were fitted together and the silver ring was riveted in place by using special punches and hammering techniques. All sharp etches were hand-filed and sanded smooth, the ring was oxidised to enhance the contrast of the pattern and received a final polish. The result is a modern, elegant band, unisex and super comfortable to wear.
band is 12mm wide and 1.7mm high ("thick")

A note on copper: Copper is a metal that will acquire a patina over time, due to oxidation when in contact with air. You either love this change, and are happy to observe the transformation of the surface colour, or you maintain the original shiny copper hues by giving the ring a touch-up polish from time to time. Depending on the skin pH and skin oils, a copper ring can discolour the skin of the person wearing it. While the inside of this ring is protected by the sterling silver liner, the outside is still copper. If your skin reacts to the metal you can seal the surface of the ring with wax or clear nail polish.
