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.....
