Bangle - Next Steps

I haven’t solved the bridging issue yet, so I’ve started printing the first of two cut-down halves to see if I can glue them together seamlessly. (CA/Superglue is said to be good for this).

Here's the filament I chose. It's non-metalic PLA but looks a lot like copper:

If the result of gluing the two cut-down halves is good, I'll sand the inner diameter to make it a comfortable thing bangle, then print two full halves in copper and try gluing them. If gluing doesn't end up being a good solution, I'll have to solve the bridging issue, perhaps with supports, or with tweaking print/extrusion/fan speeds.
