An undeniable classic, this open-ended bangle is hand-forged from 12 gauge wire in your choice of metal (jeweler's brass, 1/10 Silver Fill, 925 sterling, or 14K gold-fill) and finish (Facet, Convex or Twist—see below).
FACET: Made from 12 gauge round wire. Each bracelet is cut to size, ends are hammered flat and then filed and polished to a smooth curve before bangle is shaped and hammered on mandrel for a delicate shimmery surface. Tumble polish makes this super sparkly!
CONVEX: Made from 12 gauge square wire. Each bracelet is manually cut to size, ends are hammered flat diagonally and then filed and polished to a smooth curve before bangle is shaped and hardened on mandrel using a mallet. A tumble-polish renders the surface smooth and glossy. *Please note Gold-Fill is not available in this option
TWIST: Made from 12 gauge square which has been twisted using a trusty drill. Each bracelet is manually cut to size, the ends are hammered flat, filed to a curve and then work hardened around a mandrel with a mallet. Tumble polish makes this bracelet look like a million bucks. *Please note Gold-Fill is not available in this option
Metal is slightly malleable however it is strongly recommended that you slide bangle on as if it were closed instead of pulling ends apart to create larger opening. Excessive back-and-forth bending can compromise the shape.
Please take care not to use excessive force. Wait until after you’ve applied make-up, moisturizer,perfume and hairspray before putting on your jewelry, and please remove before doing any household work. Brass and silver do react based on each individual's own skin chemistry. Any tarnish or oxidation can be buffed away with a jewelry polishing cloth. Gold-fill may develop some darkness around the edges of the open end (this is due to the brass core exposure to oxygen) but the surface should retain it's original color. Any lackluster areas can be buffed to a shine with a jewelry polishing cloth.
**Your order includes a complementary polishing cloth and will be packaged beautifully, ready to gift (or keep).
