Sterling Silver Rope Adjustable Bangle with Beaded Spiral – Sherry Tinsman Metalsmith
Sterling Silver Rope Adjustable Bangle with Beaded Spiral

Sterling Silver Rope Adjustable Bangle with Beaded Spiral

Regular price $112.00
This adjustable bangle was inspired by a bangle that my grandmother gave to me when I first moved to North America from England. This bangle features a lovely rope pattern with my signature beaded spiral resting on top. As with all my jewelry, the finished piece was oxidized black and then he raised surface was polished to a brilliant shine. This creates a sense of depth that really shows off the natural beauty of the sterling silver.

This adjustable bangle is handmade and specially oxidized and then polished to add dimension and contrast to really bring out the organic and natural beauty of the metals.

All of my jewelry has been handmade in my studio and will either be signed or include my signature tag.

Please let us know if you have questions about sizing.

I often oxidize the silver before I complete the piece, creating a contrast between the darkened (oxidized) surface and highly polished areas. I let the recessed parts of the design carry the darkened color and let the raised parts gleam. Avoid using liquid silver cleaner on these pieces because it will remove all the oxidation. Rather, use a dry silver polishing cloth to restore the sparkle and store your pieces in a zip lock bag to keep them shiny and bright.

If your jewelry needs a major cleaning , follow these instructions using Wright's Brass Polish (can be purchased online or at your local hardware store). The reason I use the brass polish and not the silver polish is because the liquid silver polish takes off the nice oxidation I put on my pieces. The brass polish just takes off the grime. It's amazing!

You will need:

Pyrex dish
clean sponge
baby toothbrush

Place your jewelry in a Pyrex dish, cover with the Wright's Brass Polish. 
Cut a small piece of a clean sponge, dampen it, dip it in the bowl then dab all over your jewelry. You don't want to rub it just dab. 
Try and get in all the recessed areas.

Because my jewelry has so much form, rinse really well under running water. You don't want the cleaner to dry on the jewelry or it will dry as a white powder. I use a baby toothbrush to gently get in the little hard to reach places while running it under the tap.

If a piece of yours has a stone in it, you will notice I always drill a hole under the stone. This allows the light to shine through and provides a place for moisture to escape. If the brass cleaner gets into that hole and dries, you may want to use a water pick to get it out. Better yet, avoid that by putting a little piece of scotch tape over the hole, take it off after rinsing, then rinse some more. 

This brass cleaner works like magic on all sterling silver, but naturally, I only guarantee my own.
