Lately I have been quite obsessed with super heavy gauge wire even though it's really hard to work with - I don't seem to have enough strength in my hands!
Simplicity has always inspired me so when I saw this bangle/bracelet in my mind's eye, this is the only shape I could come up with that looked elegant, stunning, simple, calming and organic.
This is a unisex design but it might be a little small for a man's wrist.
This wire is 10 gauge, coiled to make double ring. Because I want to keep the material organic and maintain copper's healing properties as well, I did not seal this bracelet. Instead, when I want to wear it and like to have the super shiny copper look, I give it a quick polish with super fine steel wool. If I desire a more patina oxidized look to match my outfit or my mood, then I wear it in it's virgin state with natural oxidization.
The inside circumference is approximately 7.25" (18.41 cm) and the inside diameter is just shy of 2.5" (6.35 cm)
How to measure for a Bracelet/bangle:
Wrap your tape measure around the thickest part of your hand, with your thumb positioned as shown in the photo. Wrap the tape firmly, but not too tightly; you should be able to move the tape on your hand, as if it were a bangle bracelet. To make the bangle easy to slide on and off, the inner circumference needs to be half an inch larger. I prefer my bracelets snug so I make it the exact size but sometimes put a little lotion on my hand to slide the bracelet easily on and off.
