cheap isotretinoin onlineI’ve been working primarily with copper wire for many years. I recently started looking for a way to enhance my pieces. What better compliment to copper wire than copper sheet? Like any new medium, it helped to experiment with it to understand its characteristics. What I discovered is that it can be overworked, as in bending it too much, which makes it “brittle”. Texturizing it with a hammer may result in an uneven surface. The metal edges can become very sharp, so gloves should be worn. Fortunately, those sharp edges can easily be smoothed out by tapping with a hammer and rubbing them with steel wool.
It’s typically recommended to use heavier sheet (22-gauge and below), for necklaces, bracelets and pins. For those gauges, however, use of a jeweler’s saw is necessary. I’m not quite ready for that, so I decided to use metal shears and 24-gauge sheet. Cutting metal is not like cutting paper, since the metal doesn’t separate as readily. The longer or deeper the cut, the more challenging it becomes. What’s worked for me is to cut a larger piece around the design, then cut the details out.
When adding texture, the metal can be annealed beforehand to soften it, or you can just hammer it out with extra force. For those of you with a metal embosser, you may be able to pass 24-gauge sheet through it. Check the manufacturer’s information first to avoid potential damage to the machine, since it may not be suitable for certain gauges.
So what have I made with the copper sheet? I’ve primarily used it as a “backdrop” for large focal beads. The 24-gauge holds up well when used in this manner. Below are pictures of my latest creations. I don’t typically photograph the back sides, but I want to show how the different textures look.
