A quick post today -- a new fold form bangle. It's the heaviest copper I've used so far and was much more difficult to hammer and shape, but I like the result. Unfortunately it's too big for me or I'd keep it!

Wow, it looks good. I've only done 24 gauge like this and it was a lot of annealing and hammering.
Hi Leslie, thanks! This was 18 gauge and oh my aching hand. I've learned that hammering should not hurt your hand / wrist if done properly -- move from the shoulder and let the hammer bounce -- but can't quite get the motion consistently. So I really felt this one!
