I take jewelry classes at a studio in Santa Monica and I learned to do this just the last time I went. Making these were really fun! I think the materials are copper and nickel silver.

Those turned out great especially for your first cuffs! I like the texture of the silver one. I also love copper, if you want your stampings and engravings to stand out a little more you could antique it with liver of sulfur. I bet the studio has some you could use. Just a thought, but I do like shiny copper too!

i love the silver one! 

about the liver of sulfur mentioned above--you could antique it and then buff it out so it only remains in the stampings.  it would really make the texture stand out (it looks fine as is--just thought you'd want to know for future projects).

but lacquer it.  copper will turn your wrist green over time (learned that one the hard way!)
