Ever wondered how Mary Ellen O'Connor creates her copper and gold pieces? Starting with a copper sheet, she cuts the shape of the cuff and bends it into a basic cuff. Then using a sinusoidal stake she starts the anticlastic shaping. She moves to another stake and planishs (flattens) it to finish the shaping. Not shown is finishing work on the edges and adding the 23K gold leaf.
