Hand-Forged 7-Gauge Thin Copper Bangle

The inspiration for this bracelet came to me after I visited the ancient artifact exhibit in the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. I made this using 7-gauge copper that was submerged in sulfur to achieve the vintage finish.
Take note that the bangle will develop patina as you wear it. 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 the bracelet size that you need and if you want it with patina.

Cleaning instructions:

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.

Bangle Size:

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 _''
XXL (2 _'' inner diameter of bangle) , 9 _''

This item ships in a box, ready for gifting.
