Brass cuff bangle

One of the best Christmas presents I received this year was this cuff bangle that Graham made for me. I was so touched that as well as making it himself he also created a photographic record of each step of the making process so that I could see exactly what he'd done.

1. source  |  2. roll  |  3. crop  |  4. mark  |  5. punch  |  6. drill  |  7. saw  |  8. file  |  9. fine file

He began by rolling a single strip of brass and then punching, drilling and filing it until he ended up with the finished piece of jewellery you see above in the main image.

I love my husband.
