Thick and heavy sterling silver bangle to be....

I received a nice customer request for a 4 ga / 5 mm textured sterling silver bangle.

Let's start

First sawing off the length plus some extra

since 5 mm wire tends to be pretty stubborn,
some annealing is required.

to getting rid of the oxidation, some pickling and brushing

now soldered, again pickled and brushed.

hammering on a mandrel with a plastic hammer
to achieve a round shape.
Not quite there yet though

to be continued.....
