Anyway, had fun making these. Made from 1.8mm or 2mm sterling silver wire, I have textured the wire using petersham ribbon and old linen using my rolling mill, and hammered some wire using my different hammers. Each of these has produced a different texture.
My good friend showed me a pair of old silver bangles her Mum had given her.
She wanted another one to either match or compliment them. So gorgeous, very oxidized and vintage looking, tried to imitate the pattern on them but failed, so instead made a contrasting hammered bangle to go with.
I've sold a few bangles but I find it difficult to set a price on these. They use quite a length of silver which makes them expensive in terms of materials, they are relatively easy to make, but the problem is that you really need lots to get the best effect. Bryony, in the first picture, is wearing 9 of them, at say £10 each which doesn't make much profit, but would cost £90!
Anyway they sparkle and tinkle and look so much nicer than imitation ones, so worth it I think.
