I've made wire coil bracelets before (see first two links below) but what this Nepalese metalsmith does is clever.  He creates two wire coils from scratch - that is, melting the metal and making the wire. He then puts them together for his open cuff design! 

He uses internal wires to help stabilize the coils. 

Apart from his torch and a rolling mill, he uses very basic equipment, much as long ago metalsmiths would have had.  He has to use a torch to anneal (soften) the thick wire. However, I wonder if I could work with thinner and thus more malleable wire to make a similar sort of design? It would have to be smaller coils. 

See more on his Youtube channel, We Make Jewelry, including some chain mail demonstrations.
