Using an 18-gauge piece of fine-silver sheet for this cuff, we will delve into a variety of texturing and scuffing techniques to personalize this bracelet base. We will then use a combination of both the rolling mill and texturing hammers to create the accent arches that will give the final piece its 3-dimensional look and feel. After shaping the base to slide, we will use a combination of precisely cut tube & rivets to attach the accent arches to the base. The final portion of the class will be spent hardening the bracelet for everyday wear, and a patina solution to bring out the highlights and texturing.
