copper wire

Amy Sanford is a mixed media, sculpture and installation artist who explores realms of identity, displacement and loss. The copper wire bracelet is made from individually reclaimed electric cables, which are knotted, looped and rolled to form a wearable piece of art. Since copper wire attracts electricity, the recipient is advised not to wear the bracelet whenever risk of electrical shock is possible, for example, during lightning storms.
