2011 A New Year!

I finally got started on the first copper bracelet!   It was pretty easy to bend around the mandrel for the initial wrap.   Having the wire inserted before wrapping made a big difference.   Instead of 10G copper wire, I used 16G Brass wire.

I did cut the brass wire too short and I definitely have tool marks, but since this is the practice bracelet, it is ok.   I still will hammer down the front to make it flatter and use this bracelet to practice the texturing of the copper and giving it a patina.   Peace.
