Spriale Sancta
High relief Eastern repousse cuff bracelet
22k gold and sterling silver bi-metal
7" x 1-1/2" wide x 3/4" deep
©2009, Victoria Lansford

This bracelet was free hand hammered from a sheet of metal in the technique of Eastern repousse. The cuff formed as I created the relief. Bi-metal is 2 sheets of different metals fused together. In this case one side is 22 gold, and one side is sterling silver. It allows me to work in the yummy color of 22k, while the sterling lends strength that the gold alone would not have. The shapes are inspired by the golden section.
