Sterling Hammered Bangle - Oval Bangle Bracelet - Ellipse Bangle
Hammer forged sterling bangle with a unique ellipse shape that catches the light and shines as you move. Forged into an oval shape, the pattern is hammered in two directions, forming a shape with a flat plane on 2 halves looking down at the bangle, and then two more looking at it from the side - this way and that way. This bangle is formed from 2.6 mm round wire and forged to 3mm width at the widest flattened points.
I have forged this bangle into an shape with top and bottom flattened and widened with a gentle flare with loads of hammer marks that look like facets. This gives the bangle the look that it's wide at the top and narrow on the sides. The sides however, have been forged and flattened also, so that when you look at it from the side, the top and bottom look like the narrow part of the bracelet. An interesting shape that's sure to get comments whenever you wear it. This is a heavy bangle and one you will love to wear. This one is just impossible to great a great photo, it is such a nice heavy feeling bracelet that's a real eye catcher.
This bangle would also look terrific oxidized and then polished to bring out the raised hammered areas. Oxidation is no additional charge.
Getting the right size is important! Bangle size is not the length of a bracelet with a clasp or your wrist, please measure carefully as the bangle must go over your hand. Size small is my #1 return for a larger size, if you order a size small, I will contact you to confirm you have either measured a current bangle or have measured as directed below. I cannot enlarge a small, a new bangle has to be made so Please measure carefully, see How to Measure below!
The wide hammered areas are 3-3.2 mm wide, the narrow thickness is a bit over 2 mm, this is a substantial bangle made for many years of wear.
Small bangle: 7.5 inches, 2.25 inches inside diameter
Medium bangle: 8 inches, 2.5 inches inside diameter
Large Bangle: 8.5 inches, 2.75 inches inside diameter
Measuring yourself: Touch your thumb tip to your pinkie tip, measure around the widest part of your hand with a soft measuring tape, usually across the knuckles, make it snug. Send this measurement in inches in the Message to Seller to ensure a proper fit. Bangles are meant to slide on and move on your wrist, this measurement will determine the diameter needed for a comfortable fit!
