Etched cuff bracelet by Brandi Couvillion .5" x 6 inches (adjustable).
The Slim Bayou St. John Etched Map Cuff Bracelet is crafted from an 1880s map of New Orleans. Living on Park Island as a young adolescent was a very formative experience showcasing the significant architectural diversity of the city.
All cuffs are coated in renaissance wax.
"Etching is a technique utilizing acid to cut a design into metal and has been used in many cultures and in a variety of applications - from armor in Medieval Europe to printing plates.
The process consists of covering part of the metal (through a heat transfer) with a acid-proof material (resist - i.e., ink in this case) while leaving areas exposed to the "bite" of the acid." - Brandi Couvillion
