Hydraulic press bending

Hi, I need to bend some 1/8"-3/8" thick Stainless steel rods into 1/2"
diameter or 5/8" diameter circles for earrings in body jewelry… i
can bend the 1/8"-1/4" by hand, but need a hydraulic press to bend
the larger sizes… does anyone know where i can get a set of forming
blocks to bend this rod into circles? also, does anyone know the best
way of going about doing this? i have been wrapping the wire around a
dowel by hand and then cutting them and finishing the ends, but i
would like to cut them first and finish the ends on my lathe…
they’d look much better that way… any help on this subject would be
appreciated… thanks…
