Copper Rondelles

A couple of days ago I was contacted by a craftswoman on Etsy who asked me if I ever made copper rondelles.  Nope..  Never..  I told her that I am not set up to make them.

Later, I started thinking about it – why couldn’t I?  Isn’t a rondelle just a flattened sphere?  So out to the workshop I went.  After a bit of trial and error, I came up with a fairly reproducible technique that I was somewhat happy with.

I’ll be revisiting this project soon to play some more.  I’m not terribly happy with the outcome as they are quite what they probably should be.  Hopefully I’ll be able to offer them for sale in the not too distant future, but here’s how they turned out.
