I have made a lot of cuffs and I have the metal bracelet blanks for those. Actually for odd shaped cuffs or different designs I cut my own blanks out of cheap aluminum and cover them.
I am looking specifically for forms to do Bangles and I cannot find anything except the soda can which is too flimsy for me to really work on after I get it wrapped around the can. I tried filling a soda can with cement but didn't do it properly and there were dents, oh the dents, lol.

Oh and yes when you have time if you could find the bangle tutorial that would be awesome. I am a waiter and work weekends so I know what you mean by limited time. Thank you. Greg

What if you filled the soda can with sand, tapping the can down to pack it in tightly, and then sealed the hole qith duct tape?   or fill the can with plaster of Paris? - Beth

Hi Greg,

I don't make bracelets/bangles, but I was trying think of something with the 2 1/2 inch diameter you wanted and still be sturdy/bakeable. What about a 2 1/2 inch round cookie/clay cutter? The one I have seems very sturdy. The bangle should slide right off. If not, put some foil on the cutter, then slide it off. Hope that helps. If you could find the right size small cutters, might work for the rings too.

Awesome idea. This is why we need the brains of others when ours do not quite get it. Thank you.

Another great idea. I have a lot of circle cutters in many sizes, I will measure the correct one then get some more of that size to do several at a time. And yes I also have the small ones and never thought of using them for rings. Perfect. Thanks all. Appreciate it.

Another source is http://www.metalliferous.com/

I've gotten channel bangles fromthere (where you leave the clayon the metal) but I think they also have some you could use as forms.

I have also purchased the channel blanks from them and they are a good company. Every once in awhile I peruse the site again just to get ideas for a new project. You could also check out these people. I have bought lots of blanks from them and they to are great.

Rings - use the sockets from a socket wrench set

Bracelet - make a form the size you want from scrap clay...  just dust it with cornstarch before applying the raw clay bracelet to bake...   or wrap the form with paper and apply the raw clay to paper before baking..
