Repeat Performance
by Judy Larson
Making the same size hammered/textured bangle over and over means taking it off the mandrel many times to check the size. Here's a way to save time and turn out consistent-sized bangles
Instructions
To save time, slide a finished bangle on the mandrel. Use an ultra fine point Sharpie marker to draw a line around the upper and lower edge of the bangle. The next bangle made will only need to be taken off the mandrel to flip it over the few times needed to avoid a conical shape.

Notice those teeth marks on the top of the Sharpie cap? Ultra fine point Sharpie retractable pens are available and make life so much easier. And, no more inadvertent permanent marker mustache when trying to put the marker back in the lid with only one hand!
