As if frozen in time, these very lifelike ficus leaves are a stunning duo atop a contemporary cuff bracelet.
I created the hand forged ficus leaves from sheet metal using a technique of fold-forming called the Romero-leaf fold.
This graceful cuff style bangle is a combination of Sterling silver and pure copper. The copper cuff is 1-3/8 inches wide with the largest leaf focal measuring about 2 inches in length. I've preserved the rich patina finishes with a lacquer sealant.
