Edgardo Bellaflores      ( P.R.)

Hand-Forged Metal Jewelry

He forges the metal in cold; all of the etchings and designs are hand-hammered.

He uses different metals: Copper (red color), White Bronze (silver color), and Brass/Bronze (gold color).

            White Bronze is an alloy of copper, tin, and zinc.

            Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, while Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin. 

He also oxidizes some of the metal jewelry in green Patina.

The backside of all earrings is pretty much flat and smooth. 

All of his pieces are lacquered to maintain the jewelry shiny. Any alcohol (hand sanitizer, perfume, etc.) will strip the lacquer and remove the shine.
