Hi Everyone! This is my first post after being a member for ages,
I’ve finally gotten up the courage!
I have just received my first commission piece for a choker out of
copper. It is a trial piece for a specific costume and the client
wants it made out of 0.5mm copper, hinged at the back, fancy clasp at
the front. He felt that thicker metal would be too heavy. I plan to
edge it top and bottom with round wire to help strengthen it, but I’m
worried it won’t be rigid enough, and being so thin I’m reluctant to
hammer it too much (and thin it even more).
Does anyone have any ideas on what would help harden it?
