The leather is a 2mm leather lace that can be adjusted from around 20" up to 30". The stone beads are African Turquoise.
My friend Bridget sent me a picture of a new pair of cowboy boots that she received as a gift. They were beautiful, a piece of art. So...with that inspiration, I created this beautiful Cowboy boot in copper!
Each piece is completely made by hand and may vary slightly from these images.
Original Artwork by Patricia Healey ~ Each gorgeous genuine copper bead and pendant is handmade from sheet metal. First we cut the shapes out, then put form to metal using the technique of “Repousse”, (beating the crap out of the metal from the reverse side giving it form). We use a bronze solder which you can sometimes see as bits of gold peeking through the solder seams. To get the rich colors we use our top secret patination formula and then fire it up with a torch. Finally, the color is sealed in with a metal lacquer.
