7-Gauge Copper Bangle "Willow''

This simple bangle is made of 7-gauge copper that I hammered to achieve a textured finish. It was then tumbled to achieve a high shine. The texture on the bangle reminds me of the bark of a willow tree, thus the title.

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 if you want it to be varnished.

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 burlap bag, ready for gifting.
