Copper Bangles - Winner of the Giveaway

So, I went to Random.Org this morning, and the winner of the set of  these 3 copper bangles...


I am particularly happy that her number was chosen as Lori is the Queen of the Bead Soup Blog Party Hop, and one of the most talented jewelry designers!  She is one of - if not the first - blogs that I stumbled upon and started following "way back when".  She is a kind and generous soul, and I am so pleased to gift these to her!

Lori, these bracelets are wrapped up and in today's postal run!

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful comments -  I truly appreciate each and every one!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Giveaway Time!

I have much to be grateful for this 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).
