Copper thing

Recommended Posts

I made this thing just now in five minutes or something with a ball pein hammer. I “forged” it cold. I don’t know what it is or what it could be used for, I was thinking some sort of jewelry thing. What do you think?

Ahh yeah! I think it’s a little on the small side, but I could make it bigger! Thanks!

Forging copper is fun, it moves easily till work hardening strikes. It's an abrupt hardening so pay attention. Annealing is easy just brig it to red and let it cool or quench in water, either works just fine. I take it back to the anvil while it's still red but that's just me not wanting to wait and I usually don't keep water too close to the anvil.

Just rounding the edges of the ring will lengthen it, maybe enough.

Looks good, I like it.
