I've been tweaking found objects for as long as I can remember. I remember once when I was six I made a pretty necklace out of knotted grass and flowers. I spent what felt like days on it. I also remember crying for what felt like days when it dried up and fell apart.
Since then I've been looking for the right medium for me. I've tried paint.. string.. yarn.. pencil.. silver.. and even a tattoo machine for awhile. In all of that searching I have realized a few things.
I LOVE working in three demensions.
I am a total rock hound!
I LOVE watching metal melt, cool then eventually oxidize.
I will NEVER learn to be organized. My only hope is that snipped wire doesn't land in my bottomless cup of coffee.
I really do love what I do. I love looking down into my hands and seeing what was nothing moments before, to finding that I have created something both beautiful and interesting. I don't mind the rough skin or messed up fingernails. I thank God that he allows me to work. I can't wait to see how my work evolves.
Different from your typical cuff bracelet, this dainty little thing is designed to have the opening at the top of your wrist, adding to the femininity of the piece.
This pattern teaches a basic 4 wire wide zig-zag weave for the body of the bracelet and simple scroll work to round out the design. You will also get to practice sewing embelishments onto the ends of the cuff with a length of wire.
