Simplicity with 10 gauge silver

Recently at my metalsmith class our teacher gave us a project requiring 10 gauge sterling silver.  Why waiting for my sterling order to arrive I did the project in 12 gauge bronze for practice ( see circle cuff below) It looked so much better in 12 gauge and was certainly more practical.  I was wondering what I would now do with the thick sterling I had already paid for.  I simply made it into bangles and i just love them :)  .. The weight of the heavy silver looks rich and fabulous with all my rings.  All turned out alright :)
