Note about Brass:
"Brass Jewelry May Turn Your Skin Green. ... Sadly, this is all-too-common as brass is usually made of a combination of zinc and copper, so it can often tarnish or oxidise."
This is a normal reaction of the metal to skin oils. I recommend painting the inside with clear nail varnish, clean regularly (using either lemon juice or a recommended jewellery cleaner) and re-apply the nail varnish as it wears off, or use a microcrystalline based wax such as Renaissance wax. Like nail varnish this will wear off so needs to be applied regularly after cleaning, but the advantage of using wax instead of varnish is that is can be used all over the item.
I fancied making something out of brass, so I found some dried Oak leaves and used them to imprint their pattern onto the metal. I first heated the brass with my torch to impart an interesting colour, and after passing it through my rolling mill with the leaves I formed the anticlastic shape and polished it.
The Butterfly version was created using cupcake wrappers!
Both cuffs have been sealed with Renaissance wax to protect the finish, but will wear off eventually.
