Winter Solstice – Iron Torc

December 21, 2009

My Winter Solstice experiment – a torc made from 14 gauge annealed black steel wire.  I like the forged iron torcs better, but they take a lot of time to make and are quite rigid, making them unsuitable for sale on my website since the buyer can’t try it on.  The wire torc is springy and can even be tweaked to fit once the basic shape has been formed.  This one is a bit short for me, but would easily fit somebody smaller.  Made from three strands of wire, wrapped with a fourth strand.  The ends of the wire are coiled to form mirror-image spiral terminals.
