Hammered Brass Gold-plated Bracelet

Our first jewelry project was due today ( the other one was just for fun or because I wanted a bangle:-). The "Gypsy" piece is what our professor called it. There wasn't really a design strategy or an idea from the beginning, just start hammering, rolling and soldering. I started with a foot of 16 gauge round brass wire, hammered like crazy, annealed, soldered, sanded and polished and ended up with this leafy shaped bracelet. Gold-plated it. Finally getting excited about metal work!
