Aluminum Anticlastic Bangle with Blue Quartz Gemstone

Anticlastic Aluminum Cuff with Faceted Blue Quartz Gemstone

This Aluminum Anticlastic Bangle with Blue Quartz Gemstone was made from 16 gauge aluminum sheet metal and anticlastically raised on a sinusoidal steel stake with a nylon hammer.  The aluminum was annealed several times to aid in shaping, then filed, and finally buffed to a matte finish before attaching the focal bead.  


The Blue Quartz gemstone was fastened to the cuff by threading 14K gold-filled wire through the bead and wire wrapping it securely to each side of the raised cuff.  This anticlastic bangle, along with many more new contemporary jewelry designs, can be found in my SoMa Jewelry Collection.
