What are you most proud of? This cuff feels good on and has gotten a lot of positive feedback. Every one wants me to take it off so they can try it on.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Copper is pretty easy to work with, but be patient on this folding technique. Remember to heat the metal often or you will wear yourself out hammering and shaping. Remember copper will turn your skin so seal the interior.

I like this look. I have been wanting to do some fold forming.

This was a really fun bracelet to make but it did take a big hammer and lots of back n' forth between the torch and hammer

This looks great! I love the rustic, architectural qualities, and the patina is just incredible, I hope you're proud of this piece! I was wondering on if you can shed some light on that "squashed" texture, I've been really keen to impart something similar on a ring, did you hammer on a flat anvil or a dome? Sorry if that's totally novice of me- I've been silversmithing for some time now, but I haven't have much experience with hammer texturing, how embarrassing haha!
