The shape of this bangle is marvelous! We love the opposing curves that it has. This bracelet will be a great complement to your wrist, and you know it! A great aspect of this bangle is that if you don’t have the tools for anticlastic work, you can make a similar necklace without them. Just put the bangle on the horn of your anvil and use the ball end of a ball-peen hammer to hammer the texture in—who knew!
