Wow, that's cool! I thought it must be titanium, and am surprised to see that it is nickel. Did you stop off part of the surface, or polish off part of the patina? either way, it is very nicely done.

PS re: wave cuff

Oops! I just re-read more carefully. Now I notice that it is marriage of metals: bronze and nickel. Nevertheless, my question remains whether you needed to clean up the nickel after heat coloring the bronze.

Patina

Hi Cindy,
The nickel actually remains silver colored through the heat patina process. Only the bronze changes color.

hope this answers your question.

Just found this site and stumbled upon your photo

The cuff is stunning!  I love the colors. Sis you solder the metals together?
