Hand forged copper bangle/bracelet made with very heavy copper wire, metal bangle, copper circle bracelet
Lately I have been quite obsessed with super heavy gauge wire even though it's really hard to work with - I don't seem to have enough strength in my hands!
Simplicity has always inspired me so when I saw this bangle/bracelet in my mind's eye, this is the only shape I could come up with that looked elegant, stunning, simple, calming and organic.
This is a unisex design but it might be a little small for a man's wrist.
This wire is 10 gauge, coiled to make double ring. Because I want to keep the material organic and maintain copper's healing properties as well, I did not seal this bracelet. Instead, when I want to wear it and like to have the super shiny copper look, I give it a quick polish with super fine steel wool. If I desire a more patina oxidized look to match my outfit or my mood, then I wear it in it's virgin state with natural oxidization.
The inside circumference is approximately 7.75" (19.68 cm) and the inside diameter is 2.5" (6.35 cm)
How to measure for a Bracelet/bangle:
Wrap your tape measure around the thickest part of your hand, with your thumb positioned as shown in the photo. Wrap the tape firmly, but not too tightly; you should be able to move the tape on your hand, as if it were a bangle bracelet. To make the bangle easy to slide on and off, the inner circumference needs to be half an inch larger. I prefer my bracelets snug so I make it the exact size but sometimes put a little lotion on my hand to slide the bracelet easily on and off.
