Each item begins as a piece of sheet metal, copper, or brass. After a pattern is transferred to the metal, the piece is etched in a salt-water solution. Each piece is hand cut, sanded, and polished. A patina is applied to give it an aged feel, then sprayed with a clear polymer coating. Two small holes are punched through each end of the oval disk, suede cords attached and a toggle clasp.
