Horst and Graben Bracelet
Copper cuff bracelet. 7 x 1 inch 23 gauge copper sheet, that was textured with two patterns. Random round dimples (dots) (representing sandstone) and dashes with circular design (representing shale with fossils). Two layers in a nonconforming Horst and Graben fault pattern (geological formation due to faulting). After patterning, the cuff was formed into shape and then patina was applied with Liver of Sulphur. Finished the cuff off with glossy acrylic protective coating to keep the copper from oxidizing on the arm.
