Copper bracelets at artizan fair

Beautiful decorative artworks are at display at the craftsmen fair in my town this week.
Copper bracelets
Handcrafted jewelry, hand carved glass objects, embroidered folk costumes, everyday wooden objects and utensils, woven baskets in a large variety are brought to us by skilled artisans.

I like these fairs not just for the visual pleasure they offer but for the opportunity to meet and chat with new artists.

Copper wire bracelets
This handcrafted  bracelet is made entirely from copper wire.
In many cultures, traditional medicine ascribes healing properties to copper. Copper bracelets are sometimes considered helpful for arthritis and for heart and liver conditions.
I took a picture of the artist,  Hadaruga Mihai Florin, as he demonstrates how the copper wire is forged into an attractive design and the pieces of the copper bracelet are assembled with a hammer.
