This is my first brass foldform cuff and also my first anticlastic (turns up on the edge) cuff. It still needs some filing and sanding, but thought I'd share anyway. If you look closely at the ends you'll see they're rough and scratchy. I'll replace the image after it's finished. Or maybe I'll just add an "after" pic.
I think it started out as 20 gauge brass but it's about 22 gauge now. It seemed stiff and a little bit more difficult to work with than copper.
[update; I just couldn't leave it. This was before finishing...]
[and this is after filing, sanding, burnishing... much nicer color and highlights now!]
I'm going to try and catch my family at the pool now. It's a hot one... again.
Happy 4th of July!
Do you want to learn foldforming from Charles Lewton-Brain, its inventor? You can!! He will be at Center for Metal Arts Aug 3-6. I'll be there again this year... why not you too? Click here for the invitation or leave me a comment and I'll hook you up. Still not sure? This video will give you a little taste... http://youtu.be/_0Noad96KsI

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
