Forge Your Own Copper Bracelet

ForgeCopper

This year I plan on having a booth where I teach people how to forge copper bracelets out of copper grounding wire. My assistant and I will be showing people how the face of a hammer determines the direction metal moves in when you strike it, and we’ll be talking about how this form of metalwork has ancient roots all over the world. Our project is designed so that even if your hands are small, with the help of an adult, you can do it!

I’ll have mini anvil areas for hammering on, and a mini spot to file, sand, and bend the bracelets into a round shape.
