Bracelet Torc by ou8nrtist2 Bracelet Torc by ou8nrtist2
Torcs can be bracelets too.
I'm exploring the sub-genre of Celtic German neck rings called wendelringe (back and forth twist).This bracelet or bangle is just a small sample of the pattern I'm playing with.
Forged stainless steel.

Oh my!! This is stunning! Wish I had some extra $$. I know i'd never take it off!
Your forging skills blow my mind every time I look at your work!

My greatest value (if I have any) is to inspire...
I would suggest you find a blacksmith in your area and persuade them to let you capture some of their knowledge (for trade).Tell them you'll clean their shop and be their gopher for a few introductory lessons.You already have a start in working metal,it gets so much easier when you warm it up...

Well you sure have inspired me to want to learn some smithing!
I've done some searching and found that my small town doesn't have any blacksmiths!! So i'll have to travel to the nearest city, as there seems to be a few there.
I've wanted to learn some heat techniques but really not on my own at home... nothing good could come of that!

No,you definitely need supervision and instruction initially.It is potentially dangerous after all,but playing with fire can be addicting.Hope that as I was ,you are lucky enough to have someone guide that love early into creative productive directions instead of destructive directions...

What would something like this, made for a woman with a small wrist, cost..?

A little over $100 plus some shipping...

I shall keep that in mind. Of course, the wife doesn't do her B-Day until December, but one never knows. Sometimes, I'm just overcome with a need to do something nice for her and this would definitely fall under that heading.

I think I may be forging the same design but in heavier material today.I just feel the need to make one heavier and more manly...

You could make this.
But you'd need an oxy-acetylene torch...
