These seven bangles are all made of 12-guage copper that I fashioned to look like thin branches. My inspiration for creating this set is the oak tree that I see whenever I peer out the window of my studio. Each bracelet has a high shine finish, which is the result of the tumbling process. The bracelets were also treated with sulfur for an antiqued finish.
Take note that the bangles will develop patina as you wear them. This is because the copper does not have a coating or wax, as I wanted to preserve its healthy benefits for the wearer. Please let me know if you want them to be varnished.
If the item develops patina, you can clean it by dipping it in a solution of warm water with a tsp. of salt. Squeeze a lemon and add a few drops to the solution. Submerge the item in the solution for a few minutes and rinse it afterwards. Some of the patina should come off.
When measuring for your bangle size, position your hand the same way you would when you are going to wear your bangle. The widest circumference is the one that you should measure. Here is a size chart for your reference:
Extra Small (2 _'' inner diameter of bangle) , 6 _''
Small (2 _'' inner diameter of bangle) , 7 _''
Medium (2 _'' inner diameter of bangle ) , 7 _''
Large (2 1/2'' inner diameter of bangle) , 8 _''
Extra Large (2 _'' inner diameter of bangle) , 8 _''
XL (2 _'' inner diameter of bangle) , 9 _''
