Reversible Riveted Alternating Lithograph Tin & Textured Copper Bracelet

Regular price $45.00

I made this bracelet by riveting together discs I cut from 2 pieces of vintage lithograph tin & copper I'd textured with 2 types of vintage lace; & alternating the copper & patterned discs.  The bracelet can be worn with either side showing.  Lithography is a printing method dating to the 1790s.  During the early/mid-20th century, lithography was used to produce brightly colored toys, TV trays, lunch boxes, candy containers, doll houses & other items.  The bracelet measures 7.75” long, with a tiny brass butterfly at the end.
