Melting Scrap Wire from the Farm into Ingots and Trinkets

A fire on our farm burned up the wiring to our well, leaving me with over 100ft of unusable copper… which means now I get to melt it down in my homemade foundry! 

I stripped the wire and cut it into pieces that would fit inside my crucible. I was testing out if I could make jewelry with some doughnut molds. Check out the video to see how they turned out.
