They start off as pieces of gold-fill wire.
I hand cut them, hammer until I can't feel my fingers, shape them into a pretty cuff and then they tumble for half the day to make them beautiful and shiny.

What in the heck is gold fill?
Gold Filled is NOT the same as gold plated.
Gold fill is much higher quality than gold plated.
This is 14/20 gold filled wire.
With Gold filled, 14 karat gold is heat or pressure bonded to a brass core. Gold plated is just a microscopic film.
Gold Filled has a solid layer of 14 karat gold, which makes up 5% of the total weight. Because the brass core is completely layered with the 14 karat gold, it is tarnish resistant.
