Project 22 from Alan Reveres "Professional Jewelry Making
The Torque is made from 0.4 mm thickness copper sheet. The process involved first making a couple of wooden stakes to form the copper sheet, and then being very gentle with the hammering as the annealed copper was very soft. Soldering the long joint and forming the final shape using only your fingers was very satisfying.
Lastly I decided to colour it using the heat from the flame, this was lots of fun.
The design is not the best for either putting on and taking off or wearing, as the ends although rounded, still scrape my neck, and then it hangs a bit low, something to think about. It was however another great learning project.
