Learn to make a Copper Wire Bangle
Sharing with you my work in progress photographs of my Rustic Raw Copper Bangle. Follow each stage of the making process to create this wrap around paddle bracelet design that has been lightly hammered for a weathered rustic feel. This is one of my most popular designs, where the copper is left untreated for arthritis sufferers. The only part not featured in the photographs is the mucky part, from using a barrel tumbling machine to work harden the copper to the different stages of scratch removal and polish with a flexi-shaft. The finished piece has a high polish which creates a sparkly reflective shine! As with all metal, this untreated piece will tarnish and naturally patina over time, it can be revived with a jewellers polishing cloth. Hooray!
