I have much to be grateful for this year...my health, my mother's health, my family's health, roof over my head, new babies in the family, etc. I am very grateful that I am able to create jewelry, sell it, and donate the proceeds to Miracle Horse Rescue.
I have stated in the past that I am technologically challenged...product of my age, I suppose (that is my excuse and I am holding to it!). I post LOTS of links to my jewelry on Facebook. Well, come January, Facebook will be policing postings from non-business pages and will "disallow" this type of "free advertising". Not that I blame them...they are a business...but, I am starting over again with social media. So, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and started a Business Page. I would love it if you "liked" that page ( link here
) so you can continue follow my journey!
I had a hard time figuring out what to make for this giveaway, but I finally decided upon my favorite metal-related accessory - the bangle (spinner ring's are right up, there, too, but they require more sizing).
So - here is a set of 3 solid copper bangles.
One bangle is made from 14 gauge solid copper, to which I added a solid sterling silver nugget bead. The other two bangles are a hefty 10 gauge: one has two twists, and the other has been heavily faceted with my hammer. After soldering and forging, the bangles were given a bath in liver of sulfur, buffed, tumbled for hours for strength and incredible shine, and coated with museum wax to protect the patina.
The bangles measure approximately 2 5/8" in diameter (8" circumference).
