Regrettably, I have made the decision to cease making any themes Specifically for Gnome. This includes Gnome Shell themes. I will leave what is currently uploaded up. However, there will be no more theming done for the Gnome Desktop Environment forward from 11 Feb 2020. I will not be updating uploaded Gnome-shell themes from this date forward.
The CSD standard of Gnome makes theming Gnome- In This Style- exceptionally difficult and sloppy. I attempted to make a stand against it by creating Gnome Themes that clearly resist the Gnome Vision. But resist is all they can do. Many flat or multicolored themes work well in Gnome. However for themes that use imagery, depth, and skeuomorphism, Gnome just will not work out.
Gnome wanted to ensure they could protect their brand image- they have succeeded.
Inspired by Treetogs CopperDeck II theme for Windowblinds and JamesHardy88's port of it to Gnome;
This theme is modified in a few ways. Certain modifications had to be made to accommodate the GTK3 theme engine, as well as GTK 3's taller headerbar,
It is true that I can write into the gtk.css to modify the headerbar height (Not applicable in later gtk versions), however, that is not universal and may mess up some peoples screens. It is better to modify the theme, than to modify your settings.
UPDATE: Patched for gap under headerbar.
I am not a Professional that works for Canonical or anything. I am a mechanic that switched to Linux in still (barely) under a year ago (as of Dec 8 2019).
I am learning. But sometimes, I learn how dumb I can be. I have figured out a nominal way of more or less framing in the gtkbox on most windows. The Downloadable file Now Reflects this so if you downloaded this for gnome prior to Dec8 2019, you do not have this update.
--So, this has a Closed Top on the top border rather than the Original Copperdecks Open Top design. I DID make an open top design, as well and if you like, you may ask for screenshots. I do not plan to upload it any time soon- however, if you would like to see it, prefer the screenshots version to this download, I can send it to you.
I modified the XFWM4 theme within for XFCE desktops to match the GTK3 version for uniformity. If you prefer the design more closely related to the Original, you can grab that here:

--This includes a Slightly Modified version of the Icons also listed on my page. (includes the Revised icons, please see here for Screenshots: https://www.pling.com/p/1340771/ ).
--The other Modification is just one I tend to like and always do: Inactive windows "Close their eyes." This makes it easy to spot, immediately, which window you are working in and differentiate it from those that are not. Which is why background windows in the screenshots have gray colored titlebuttons.
I was planning to link to the Cursor ported or provided by Atilla:
However, I get a 505 gateway error when I test the download. Since 2009... It MAY work on another date, so you may try it... But I got fed up and made a cursor theme which is included in this package.
--This includes the Gnome Shell theme.
I included some more wallpapers I slapped together more tuned to todays monitor resolution. They don't look much like the original... But close enough. I like the cleaner look of them. 1440x990 and 1366x768 px

Please Report Bugs or problems! So far, no one ever has unless I directly messaged them and asked. I find most issues with repeated testing but I do not keep testing forever.
So, if you find a major glitch, please do speak up.

"Have you thought about making this in a different color than Orange?" ---- I have definitely thought about it... Like... Blue... but then it wouldn't be CopperDeck. Opinion? Comment down below...
