Bronze: An alloy and a name of a color denoting a mid-value, earthy brown hue. Today's feature showcases the beauty of bronze as both a color and a medium.
As a color name, the word 'bronze' was first used in the English language in the mid-18th century. Bronze, as a metal alloy consisting of copper mixed typically with tin, was so revolutionary in human culture that an entire historical era bears its name: The Bronze Age. Throughout the ages, from antiquity right up to modern times, it has been used for tools, weaponry, building materials and ornamental arts. With the addition of silicon in the 20th century, bronze gained even wider application in industry and modern statuary. To many, it may seem commonplace and humble, but in talented artistic hands it becomes extraordinary. Today's selections feature bronze either as a surface-finish color or a metal component in the creations of eight talented jewerly designers found on Etsy. Some of these artists have had no sales and receive minimal traffic to their stores, despite their superb artistry. Click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings.
