Horseshoe nails...one of my favorite materials to work with....and I'M REALLY excited because I just recently found these COPPER-COATED horseshoe nails.!!!
Bracelet is made using bent, curved horseshoe nails, linked together with heavier copper links. Closes with a copper lobster clasp.
~~~~~~~~~~~~Horseshoe nails are made of steel....these ones are copper-coated. Over time, and with heavy wear, some of this coating will most likely wear off. When I brought these home....the first thing I did was take a wire brush and a sander to a few, just to experiment. It'll probably take awhile for the copper to wear off completely....BUT, I can only see this as a patina kind of thing, with the copper wearing, and the steel coming through and then darkening as it does with wear, and all of it coming together over time for it's own individual look.
Measures approx. 7 1/2 inches in length, give or take a bit. Can be made longer or shorter if needed...just ask!
