About this design:

thanks to Mommykat Bubbly Chick's help This is my 1st hammered piece . I heated the copper in a pan on the electric burner on my stove, and then hammered and formed. I made a interchangeable donut bail...

    Very cool why did you have to soften it was it to hard to bend otherwise? I like it..I have been doing alot of my own clasps latey I just use 18 gauge sterling silver….Maybe I’ll try something like what you did Dora….
