Week 37-Some Etching

I did some copper etching last week. The earrings were inspired by Cindy Wimmer's necklace in the last Step By Step Wire. They're not for the faint of heart measuring about 2 7/8" long. The skyline bangle is 1 1/2" wide and was done with a stamp and Staz-on ink which I then went over with a Sharpie. The waves bangle is 1" wide and also used a stamp for the design.


  1. these are absolutely gorgeous Nancy! I haven't made my way to etching yet, but it is on my list :)

  2. Thanks, Melissa! Etching is actually pretty low tech. You ought to give it a try.

  3. Love it! Etching is on my "to-do" list. Love how yours turned out!
