Heavy Gauge Mixed Metal Bangle

$44.00

Heavy Gauge Mixed Metal Bangle - Very thick (6 gauge / 4mm thick) solid copper has been forged into an oval bangle shape with textured applied on three sides of the copper.  I forged an oval out of thick sterling silver (12 gauge), soldered it closed, and added more texture! The sterling silver link is permanently attached to one side of the bangle with a simple loop, and the opposing side has been forged into a hook.  

This heavy duty solid copper cuff has been hand polished, oxidized/antiqued, buffed again, and tumbled for hours to achieve incredible strength, shine, and a beautiful, rustic patina. Several coats of jewelry grade museum wax (Renaissance Wax) has been buffed onto to the metal to protect the patina.  Copper naturally deepens its patina as time wears on.

The bangle has a diameter of approximately 2 1/2" and best fits wrist sizes up to 6 3/4" round.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio.  Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
