Copper Curved Cuff Bangle

I love the Golden Rose colour of Polished Copper, I thought I would make a gorgeous bangle to show you how and beautiful copper can be! I feel copper is so underrated when it’s such a lovely material.

This is my very first curved cuff bangle attempt and I started with cutting the copper into a rectangle, I went with 160mm length and 18mm width. I then hammered the copper, which I found very therapeutic, annealed the bangle and started forming the bangle curved shape. To make the bangle extra shiny and harden up the metal I put it in the barreling machine and then on the polishing machine.

Let me know what you think and see the photos below

    I agree, copper is very under rated for jewellery; it has such a beautiful finish and should be used more often. I love your bangle – quite a simple shape with a little texture which shows off the metal so well.
