Braided Copper Silver Bangle by SRTolton Braided Copper Silver Bangle by SRTolton
Here's the first of the copper! The copper is twisted which adds a nice subtle sparkle and hardens the copper. The outside wires are silver as are the wraps. The centre braid has been hammered under felt to harden it even more to avoid warping.

This is so well made. I made a bunch of simple bangle bracelets and was selling them as fast as I could make them at my last festival! Hope you have great success!

Neat idea. I'm guessing from your description that you twisted the copper yourself? Sweet, if you did.

Yep, its hand twisted. I've actually gotten a lot of comments involving the twisted wire here on DA as well as when I'm teaching so there might be a tutorial on that appearing soon! :)

I've seen a tool for that. Looked like a mini-power drill. I'm thinking there is a simpler way to do it.
