Copper etched and image transfer bracelet

Last Friday I took a class at my local arts store to make this beautiful bracelet.
The guest artist, Joni Russel from Artful Illusions (Mrs Olearys in Wichita KS) taught us the basics in copper etching, (which I must say, is involved using chemicals etc) and then how to transfer images onto metal. She had several different themes to choose from for your bracelet. Of course I immediately went for the beach/sea theme. The brass charms were patinaed, again using chemicals and attached here and there with other embellishments to compliment and complete your bracelet. I would like to do more of these, but a lot of new equipment/tools are involved, so I will just have to do that a bit at a time. Just what I need....more stuff
