Forgot to show you these! This is what you can do with a bunch of huge copper that can be purchased at your local hardware store. This is 8, 6, 4 gauge copper grounding wire (91 cents per foot) from the hardware store and some 10 gauge square copper wire from Rio Grande. I used my rolling mill to roll the wire flat, annealed, hammered, dolled up with some silver accents… and awesome, super chunky, heavy chevy, fun, mix and match bangles. I am going to blacken them all and polish up just the silver details. One of them is already blackened. You can see it in the middle of the pile. Standard Bangle of this thickness is an 8.5 inch piece of material.. a little large ladies hand is 8.75 inch and a little smaller ladies hand is 8 inch. Go ahead and make some! You need a super hot flame to heat this kind of material up. A hand held butane torch might not do it.

These are gorgeous and simple… The topaz set is even sweeter being slightly smaller… Here is the links to them online: https://www.etsy.com/listing/97788174/hammered-circle-amethyst-briolette?listing_id=97788174&listing_slug=hammered-circle-amethyst-briolette
