Show your strong and unique personality with this intricately detailed bee and hive copper cuff. You will feel bold wearing it!
The practice of beekeeping dates back at least 4,500 years. Approximately one third of the food we eat is the result of honey bee pollination. In their 6-8 week lifespan, a worker bee will fly the equivalent distance of 1 ½ times the circumference of the Earth. A productive queen can lay up to 2,500 eggs per day. A single bee will produce only about 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.
Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts love this handmade, bee and hive cuff bracelet. I have applied a dark patina to emphasize the details of the design and to give it a dramatic look. This bracelet is coated with a metal sealer to help protect the metal from tarnishing.
To achieve the design on this bracelet, I have used an acid etching technique. Years of experimenting with and fine tuning the process has led to the intricate details you see here.
This gorgeous bracelet was fashioned with thick, 14 gauge (1.6 mm) copper. It measures 1” W x 6” L and has a 1.25” opening in the back to slip over your wrist. The cuff is adjustable and usually accommodates wrist sizes 5 3/4” to 7 3/4” comfortably, depending how loose or tight you like to wear your jewelry. To ensure this will fit your wrist please measure your wrist. If you have questions about the sizing please don’t hesitate to ask me. For an additional fee, custom sizing is available. Email me for custom sizing options.
SIZING: The cuff may be slowly adjusted, with even pressure on both sides of the opening. Please remember to leave yourself just the right amount of space to be able take the bracelet off without it being too loose to fall off your wrist on its own. Adjusting the size of metal jewelry frequently is not recommended. To put the bracelet on and to take it off, it may be helpful to do so sideways, just above your wrist bone, in the meaty part of your forearm. For further details on the proper sizing of your cuff, please watch the video on the Sizing & Care page.
CARE: Please treat your GaleForce Design Jewelry as you would all special jewelry. Avoid exposure to water, lotions, sprays, cleaners, perfumes, abrasives, etc.
