Here are some pictures of the process involved in making on of my lyric bangles!
1) cut silver wire to size with piercing saw
3) put in safety pickle (acid bath) to clean
4) rinse then file excess solder off
5) hammer flat to give the battered organic look! (ear plugs are handy as this is pretty loud!
6) Hand stamp the personalised message- each letter individually
6) oxidise, so you can read the writing easily
7) polish with 5 different polishing wheels
8) gift wrap!
