Copper the making

Next step: I bought some 5 mm / approx 4 ga copper sticks (they are sold as sticks 
not wire, they are not very bendable at all)

Cut 5 for bigger size (men) and 4 smaller ones (women)

Had to anneal them very thoroughly to make them soft, 
then use my new mandrel and form the ....
are they bangles or cuffs..?? sure...

They are hammered from three sides.
Still to be filed and pickled.
Lot's to do :)
