Description

Bangle made from copper wire with a lightly hammered finish.  The copper has some flexibility which helps for getting it on and off and for sizing.  It is sold in a black presentation box.  About 5.5cm high.  It has a layer of lacquer to protect it, but this may rub off with time and wear.

I have more than one size of these bangles.  The small is about 6.2-6.4cm diameter (so probably about right for s slimmer female wrist), the medium is about 6.5cm diameter (so more of a normal female wrist or smaller male wrist) and the large is about 7cm diameter (so better for knobbly hands or bigger wrists/hands).

To get the bangle on or off, I suggest twisting it as you try to move it.  It seems to help.

I make this bangle starting with copper wire.  I cut a length and smooth the cut ends.  Then I polish it and lightly hammer the length.  Using pliers to grip the copper, I twist the ends into circles.  This can leave tiny marks on the copper.  Once I have the ends shaped, I wrap the copper around a bracelet mandrel.  This gives a round bangle.  I polish it again, then lacquer it.

For a version without hammering I have –

I also have a version with an extra loop of wire –
