Forming a Cuff Bracelet with the Bonny Doon Hydraulic Press

Follow along with G. Phil Poirier as he uses a Bonny Doon hydraulic press, the anticlastic bracelet-forming die set and a square of urethane to form a sterling silver 12-gauge lattice-work bracelet blank into a beautiful and gorgeously curved anticlastic cuff bracelet. The blank features an intricate pattern of piercings. See how effective the hammer is for forming metal—even relatively fragile metal—without distorting the metal or any patterning or texturing the metal may have.
