On the Waves Panel Bracelet
One-of-a-kind: A panel bracelet with anodized niobium* sea life floating on copper and bronze waves. Copper and bronze hand-cut waves have been fused to the sterling silver background (no solder) and 5 fishes and 1 starfish of anodized niobium are riveted. The sterling silver background is texture with little “bubbles”. It has a sterling silver handmade hook and eye clasp.
The bracelet is 1” wide and 7-1/2” long.
* Niobium (Nb) is a reactive metal similar to titanium. An electrical current passed through it will change the surface color (anodized). The amount of voltage applied will determine the color. It is hypoallergenic because it is resistant to acids and alkalines. To clean, if it loses it’s shine, use any window cleaner. It costs about the same as sterling silver and is a bit lighter in weight. While the anodized color should not fade, it is a surface color and can scratch but not readily.
