I'm planning to post twice a week; artist's choice on Mondays and a formal wedding style piece on Wednesdays. We'll see how that works out.
Fold forming is a new skill for me that I've been practicing. It's a technique that uses metal folding, a whole bunch of hammering, a torch to anneal (soften) the metal, and sometimes a rolling mill. Today's copper bangle is a sample of my fold forming practice. The bangle is made from a 1x5.5" piece of copper sheet, and the last photo shows before and after.
Let me know what you think, and stop back for "Wedding Wednesday." See ya!

Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
