Bangle 1. I hammered this one really flat out of heavy gauge solid copper and then hand stamped "A Circle of Friends Can Never Be Broken" with teeny tiny font into it. A small turquoise bead is wire wrapped in between the split of the hoop. This one would make a great gift to a friend.
Bangle 2. Tiny turquoise squares are captured between hammered bands of copper, then wrapped to secure them.
They can be worn together or separate.
Both bangles were given a patina and polished for strength and shine. These are standard size and may run just a bit small, but I would be happy to make custom sizes. Just let me know!
