Vintage Bell Trading NOS
Paula says - "This vintage copper thunderbird cuff from the Fred Harvey era is wide, thick and heavy!
"This bracelet will fit a 6 3/4 inch wrist as is and can be opened or closed approximately 1/4 inch to fit a larger or smaller wrist.
"This piece is NOS (new old stock) that was made in the 1970s but never used - it is brand new vintage!"

Copper oxidizes and darkens when it comes in contact with the air in the environment. There are many who swear by the health benefits of wearing copper (copper bracelet manufacturers) while others have the opposite viewpoint. Read more about copper . . .
