Anticlastic copper bangle

I've been sort of chipping away at this bangle bracelet for the last month.  Since the forming requires so many trips under the torch, I would do some forging until the copper became too work hardened to keep going and set it aside.  As I soldered other pieces I would anneal the copper and then do another forging session.

I ended up with an anticlastic bangle with a heat patina (I looooooove the colors I can get from copper that way) and a sterling closure.

I love the edges and the variation in the color - perfect for fall.
