Sand Cast Industrial Modern Bangle




I lost foam cast this aluminum bangle bracelet in my home built foundry.  This concept could be applied to many Halloween costumes.   Feel free to ask me any questions you may have.  You can see more of my work on Deviantart   Or purchase this bracelet on my Etsy

    Did you take a video of how you did it? I would really like to see that. If not can you give some pointers for someone that wants to make bracelets as well?

    Here is a great intractable detailing the casting process:

    I did not use drywall mud as he suggests, and I used a simple homemade foundry run off charcoal (many instructables exist)

    I made my blank by attaching a piece of foam to a drill and spinning it like a lathe agains files and chisels to get the shape.

     I love this style of jewellery. And the colours of it make it look fantastic.
    One question though, why didn't you make it symetrical?

    yeah, symmetry is for squares. non-symmetrical people make better things! lol jokeing. seriously though, i've always found non-symmetrical things more appealing.... has more character.....

    like your bracelet-thing, by the way. one question. how does one get one's bracelet for one's small wrists over one's huge meat-hands? lol

    I just put together a lot of info I had seen before as well as some of my own. One thing I can tell you, don't try to use a soup can for your crucible, it can technically work but in practice it is very likely to fail.

    There are multiple instructables for casting, this is just a slideshow to show one possibility.
