    Hi there. I have made anticlastic spinner rings using doming punches successfully but do like the idea of making bangles. Obviously using doming punches canít work as even the biggest will be too small. Are you really happy with your bangle die? May well take the plunge!

    I love my bangle die! This is the type of bangle it produces. For anticlastic though I have to use a stake.

    Yes they look amazing. But what I was asking about, and I may well have missed the point is, I would like to make as it were a giant version of a spinner ring as a bangle! I guess I am barking up the wrong tree!

    In that case the bangle die would only make the spinner ring for you.

    You are also limited to 2mm wide wire if you hammer it. Now I have a press I'm going to try a heavier wire and see what happens
