Make your own forged bracelet

Share |
I'm teaching a completely new class next month at Gifts of Avalon. In this class, I will show you how to forge a cuff bracelet from your choice of metal. Learn how to make the bracelets shown here. They will post information about upcoming classes in their next newsletter, but you can go ahead and call them directly at 352.379.1272 to sign up.






The top bracelet is made from copper. The bottom bracelet is made from brass. The copper bracelet has been finished to have a "multi color" look, whereas the brass bracelet does not have the patina.









Even if you have no metalsmithing experience, you will be able to make this bracelet.












A model shot! The funny part in this is that I was the model. Hard to hold the camera and extend my arm at the same time, but you get the idea.

  1. These look like lots of fun to make. I really need to buy some sheet and get to hammering!

  2. The hammering can be quite therapeutic depending on the day. LOL
