Etched Copper Jewellery

Copper is one of my favourite metals to work with. There are numerous techniques that can be applied to this base metal but I decided to be minimal with my process. This time, I used etching and fold forming. Etching again is a technique that I am familiar with since my college days since I specialised in print making. We used to etch on Zinc plates and then take prints from them. I used this technique to etch the words of Tagore on my jewellery pieces. Fold forming is also a fun process where you fold and unfold the metal to create ridges and valleys in order to bring more dimension to the shapes. All the elements used in the designs are inspired from nature. Leaves, flowers, geometric shapes and especially the sickle moon shape is very close to my heart.
