Open Seam Bracelet

It’s been a busy few weeks in the studio with lots of jewellery and talented painting being done! The Open Seam Bangle. This is a fairly technical bangle (shown here made in copper for its anti arthritic properties) usually made in sterling silver. The photos show the process from a blank template to the finished product. If you came on the two or three day course you could make this! We would practice first on copper and then move onto making a final piece in sterling silver. The bangle is made using a process known as an anticlastic curve with a generator curve thrown in too. The making of this uses files, sandpaper, a sinusoidal stake, a cross peen hammer, a planashing hammer, a blow torch and polishing tools.  It looks and sounds complicated but with guidance and patience it can be yours to keep or give to a loved one.  So come on set yourself a challenge and come and make one.
